SUNY ADIRONDACK Writing Faculty Showcase at the Writers Project

September 20, 2021

12:30 p.m.

Visual Arts Gallery, Dearlove Hall, 640 Bay Road.

I’ll be reading from the prologue and have free postcards.

Lâle Davidson’s Blue Woman Burning is at once a road novel, a mystery, and a wise meditation on family and the way hurt begets hurt. As propulsive as its plot is, though, it’s Davidson’s wondrous, penetrating, eloquent prose that will stick with readers. This book is that rare thing: a page-turner that can and should be savored. – Gabriel Blackwell, author of CORRECTION and editor of The Collagist

100,000 Poets for Change Reading

I’ll be joining a host of readers reading about peace and climate change, sharing an excerpt of my book Adirondack Center for Writing Peoples Choice Award winning book of short stories, Strange Appetites, being re-released by Red Penguin Books this fall. Free postcards of the cover.

August 23, 2017, 7-9 p.m. Hillview Free Library
Reading/Lecture “Two Paths to Writing Your Life: The Magical and the Real.” Hillview Free Library

I’ll read excerpts from two stories that used to be one and are both (very) loosely based on my life, “Hitting the Wall” and “The Gatekeeper’s Mistake,” in order to illuminate the uses of magical realism as well as the writing process. Powerpoint will be included and the lecture is open to the public.

September 19, 2017, 11:30-12:45, SUNY Adirondack 
Lecture: “Ecuadorian Literature”

I’ll be presenting a lecture and powerpoint at SUNY Adirondack’s Continuing Education Lecture and Lunch series for seniors, at the Scoville Auditorium on the main SUNY Adirondack campus. While there’s a small fee for the day of lectures and the lunch, I believe the lecture itself is open to the public.
