2020 WALDEN AWARD FINALIST SPEECH

Delivered 11.23.2020 at the ALAN Workshop

I also want to thank all of t

“Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people's ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.”
Roberto Bolaño, 2666

“Closing your eyes isn't going to change anything. Nothing's going to disappear just because you can't see what's going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes.

Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
