First reading ever of Iris and the Crew to happen live at ephemera on March 15, 2023!

You could have knocked me over with a feather when KT Bryski sent me an email this week, asking me to read at the next ephemera event. For those who don’t know it, ephemera is a multi-award-nominated reading series run by awesome humans KT Bryski and Jen Albert. It used to be an in-person event but has been streamed live on YouTube since the pandemic came to Canada. Every month, usually the third week, these events take place with wonderful readers and performing artists!

So, yeah, I was invited to read! Honestly, I was so honoured and frankly, stunned. But what a wonderful opportunity for me to share words from my new book, Iris and the Crew Tear Through Space! I’ve already chosen the excerpt, too!

If you would like to listen to me read, please go to the Live section option on ephemera YouTube channel on March 15 at 7pm EST! The entire event is about an hour long and will remain on their channel (in the Live section) afterwards!

I’m still full of squees! And very grateful for the opportunity!

Hope you can join us!
