LET’S GET TOGETHER!
In a book club? I’ll be happy to discuss my book with your group via Skype, Facetime, Zoom, or even in person (schedule and location permitting).
Looking for a classroom speaker? Teachers, include my work in your syllabus, and I’ll meet with your classroom via Zoom, Facetime, Skype, or in person (schedule and location permitting). The Lightness of Water & Other Stories fits well into courses on environmental studies/literature, women’s studies/literature, English and literature, and (of course!) creative writing. I’m happy to assist you with course-related questions that fit your pedagogics. (Press 53 is happy to work with your campus bookstore and provide you with a free desk copy!)
