Beauty and Resistance

“Beyond Words: Beauty and Resistance,” is what they’re calling our reading at Beyond Baroque, Sunday, September 17, 4:30 pm. “We” = me plus Richard Wirick, Zlatina Sandalska, and Andrew Tonkovich. I’ll be reading the opening of a novel I’ve been working on for a few years, now more topical than when I started.

If you’re not a Beyond Baroque member, admission is $10 and everyone gets a free copy of the new issue of the Santa Monica Review.

Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Blvd., Venice, CA 90291. Free parking lot (turn right to enter just before you get to the building if you’re headed in direction of ocean) and also free street parking on Sunday.

Resist and Write on!

    Hi, Carol. I’m getting into the homestretch on this draft but it’s slow going, in part because I’m not sure of what I’m doing as it nears the close, but also difficulties with my eyesight limit the time I can work. Thank you for the encouragement. Actually, one of the reasons I’m glad to be doing the reading is that sharing the opening with an audience should invigorate me.

    I love the title of the event, Diane. It’s so appropriate for the work you do. I’m sorry to hear about limitations due to eyesight and send my best wishes. I’m eager to read your newest work when you’re done! My editing is sidelined for the moment as I focus on all of the details for the course I’ll be teaching all too soon. Teaching, though, always gives me a chance to reflect and test out difficult sections with my students. Sending hugs, dear friend.
