Some events in 2024

I’ve been remiss at updating this site, and for that, I apologize. Please find me on Facebook, which I update more often.

Here are some events I’ll be doing in 2024:

I’ll be a part of a roundtable at Red Balloon Bookshop with Johanna, as well as two local Asian Americans who need no introduction: Kao Kalia Yang and Eliza Rasheed.
