It was an honor participating in the Writers Resist LA event on January 14, 2018 at Beyond Baroque in Venice, California. The event marked one year since the presidential inauguration, and more importantly, a year of art and resistance. The reading was, for me, a moving reminder of the power of words to illuminate the historical moment in which we're living, to sharpen and raise our voices, and to nourish one another in our shared struggle. If you were unable to attend, you can watch a video of the event on YouTube here. My reading begins at the 1:36 mark.
