clockwise from top: the Invisible Cities; Claire Light; [yours truly]; Neela Banerjee. i believe Ellen Oh took these pictures! thanks, Ellen.

had a beautiful evening back at kearny street workshop on Monday, Feb 1st, for Kaya Press’ SF launch of lydia’s funeral video. it was amazing to catch up with beloved friends i hadn’t seen in years–all incredible, brilliant, talented people.

claire light read a chapter of her amazing new novel, sadie contini & han wang of the  invisible cities performed a beautiful set–with special guest drummer (and singer!) melissa hung!–, and neela banerjee was a tremendous and inspiring emcee.

i did excerpts of the play–and also stumbled my way through a q&a led by claire (not my most impressive moments on the planet, but i appreciate claire’s & other folks’ questions, which i somehow managed to totally not answer, in spite of my best intentions).

much gratitude to everyone who made it happen and everyone who was there–it was such a joy to be in the space with everyone.
