I will be giving 2 free, public multimedia readings this week in San Francisco:
Friday November 14 is my debut at my new employer, California College of the Arts. I will be giving a multimedia overview of my projects and approach to memoir as the final WRITERS SERIES/FRIDAY SEMINAR:
3:30 – 5:00 PM
The Writers Studio
195 De Haro at 15th Street
Thursday November 15 is a project near and dear to my heart: a benefit reading/video on the legacy of the Nigerian civil war called LOOKING : BIAFRA.
Join EMERGENCY USA for Listen for Peace, an evening of literature and music to raise awareness about the realities of war, potential for peace, and the impact of war on civilian lives. Writers include Faith Adiele, Ingrid Rojas Contreras, Genny Lim, Julie Thi Underhill, and editors of an anthology of Afghan women.
The event is free and open to the public, though there will be opportunities to donate to EMERGENCY USA to help contribute toward the funding of free medical facilities in war torn areas.
5:30 – 7:30 PM
