The reading was long delayed.
It seems like other reporters may have started relying on my research, which is kind of cool, but also please everybody be aware I did the research all on my lonesome.
I was unexpectedly still processing feelings about Didion's death.
But the reading, with Stacie Stukin (pictured above with me!), Jori Finkel and the luminous Steffie Nelson, was a true pleasure.
Some old friends showed up, and I was so pleased! It's kind of amazing to be physically present with people, in spaces, thinking about the same things.
