It was glorious. Such a beautiful, enchanting venue. I was simply charmed.
It took place at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, and it was otherworldly.
The readings were beautifully done. They clocked in at about seven minutes apiece. We had three readers, then a short break, and then three more readings. It left me wanting more. The most memorable to me was John Skipp’s reading from his book The Art of Horrible People., about a couple who kidnap a clown. The story is chilling, but Skipp’s reading of it is superb. I’m so delighted that this will soon be up as a podcast so you can hear for yourself. Keep an eye on the Shades and Shadows site, but I’ll also link you here when it’s available.
It was so cool to meet Lauren Miller, Chris Farnsworth, S.P. Hendrick, and Adrian Mendoza. What a wonderful set!
I look like I’m going to eat Xach Fromson’s delicious, delicious brain. I might have been considering it. Readings make me a bit peckish.
It was such a pleasure. It was food to my soul. I hope you can attend the next Shades and Shadows reading in July. I had a sneak peek at some of the lineup and my eyes blew out of my skull!
