|U.S. Embassy Booth at the International Book Fair|
The reading will be this Monday, April 30 (which is a holiday here in Buenos Aires), at 6:00 p.m. Following my presentation will be Donigan Merritt reading from his novel, Blossom, at 7:00 p.m.
Like many writers who are used to working alone in silent rooms, it's a bit traumatic to read aloud one's own work and in this case, about myself as well. I've always been afraid of public speaking, and for that reason joined International Toastmasters when I first arrived in BsAs, where I met some fabulous folks and got some experience but never conquered my fears. Still, it's a chance for personal growth, as they say.
So if you're around and enjoy books, come to the Fair, the largest book fair in Latin America, and give me some moral support while you're there.
Copies of my book will be available at KEL Books, close to the Embassy stand, for 100 pesos, and I will be delighted to sign it for you.
Hope to see you there!
