The COVID 19 virus changed everything. Many literary festivals, book clubs, library readings, and other gatherings where I’d been booked to speak and read were, for very good reason, cancelled. While we’re slowly returning to normal, Covid 19 is not yet behind us. So this list of appearances is thinner than in other years. But it’s starting to change, and public, in-person events seem to be on the way back. But it ain’t quite over yet, so stay safe.
