As we approach the end of the year, I wanted to name two upcoming events that I am involved in.
1) PEN New England Reading on June 7th @ 4:00 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble in Boston. I will read excerpts of my novel in progress. The information is below.
2) Seussical the Musical - June 6th and 7th @ 7:00 p.m. It is at Fourth Presbyterian Church in South Boston. 340 Dorchester Street. I have spent the last ten Tuesdays teaching 70 elementary school kids to sing and dance.
Both events are free and open to the public. You are more than welcome to attend. Both are good, clean fun. I am firm believer in life-long learning. These are two examples of ways I am still striving to increase my understanding of English (writing and literature) and hone my skills as a director. IT NEVER STOPS and it shouldn't.
Here is the information on the reading:
