A Virtual Reading

One of the highlights of my literary calendar is the annual Saints & Sinners Festival in New Orleans. I’ve been attending the festival for years now, enjoying the company of fellow writers, editors, and readers, and exploring the charms of the French Quarter. Sadly, the festival had to be canceled this year because of that pesky coronavirus. It was such a disappointment to miss out on the wonderful panels (I was scheduled to moderate one this year with the evocative title “Books, Bed, and Beyond”) and to hear from both established and emerging authors.

A highlight of the festival is the reading series, affording a chance to hear authors read from their own works. Thanks to the creative thinking of the leaders of the festival and the folks at Tubby & Coo’s Mid-City Bookshop in New Orleans, we were able to record readings and upload them to the Internet.

You can check out all the readings at Tubby & Coo’s youtube channel. I’m posting here my own contribution, an excerpt from my novel Channeling Morgan. Please enjoy!
