Last night was such a treat for me! Thank you Spring Street Gallery in Saratoga Springs for allowing me to give my first reading from my novel, The Burning of The Piping Rock, as part of the “Something for Everyone” series. There were wonderful people there who asked great questions and shared memories of Saratoga in the days of the mob. My daughter, Julia, was there, too, which added to the joy of the evening.
Spring Street Gallery is lovely, a beautifully transformed 19th century church, very sensitively redesigned as a gallery. The space I spoke in was modern, intimate. I urge you to go to the next reading, by poet Naton Leslie on May 30.
Finally I must thank my longtime friend, the author and historian Amy Godine for asking me to participate in the “Something for Everyone” series. Amy I am so looking forward to your upcoming book!
I’ll be posting information about future readings here. Next post, I’ll talk about “the tapes.” Looking forward to your comments.
