October Appearances in San Francisco

I’m excited to be speaking/reading in San Francisco twice in October, once at Lit Crawl and once at Literary Speakeasy! Both events are free.

Lit Crawl has packed Saturday, October 19 full of readings! I’ll be at the San Francisco Buddhist Center at 8:00 p.m., reading on the topic of Other Worlds. This is a new venue for me, and I’m eager to hear the other readers: R. Krishna Chaganti, Tony Acarasiddhi Press,...free.
