Continuing with the list of my upcoming activities, on Tuesday, October 13, I’ll be reading at Pen Parentis in Manhattan with the fabulous Veronica Schanoes and the stupendous Sarah Langan (to whom I’m not related, really [except, with the name thing, you figure we have to be, somewhere in the dim mists of time, right?]). Pen Parentis is a group concerned with parents trying to balance their parental roles with their writing lives (or should that be with writers trying to balance their writing lives with their parental roles?). They put on a terrific reading series, in which writers read from their work and then discuss the challenges of writing while parenting with each other and with the audience. You can find information here. If you can make it, please do, and please say hello.
