Paris Writers' Workshop Faculty Reading Wednesday 29th June 2016

29 June 2016 at 6pm: Jennifer K Dick (poet), Ayana Mathis (novelist), Michelle Huneven (nonfiction writer), and Nahid Rachlin (novella/short story author) will read at Berkeley Books of Paris for the Paris Writers Workshop Faculty Reading. Berkeley Books, 8 rue Casimir Delavigne, 75006 Paris. M° Odéon or RER B

I will be reading entirely new work from the manuscript That Which I Touch Has No Name, completed this June. In fact, I will be reading from the last section I finished while in Amsterdam just a few weeks ago--so will be testing the waters.

So I hope you can join me/us for this event!
