It’s finally December, which means the year is at last winding down. But even as quarantine marches on, I’ve been doing my best to keep myself busy over here, if for no other reason than to avoid the existential dread of 2020. So if you’re looking for something fun to do this month as you avoid existential dread as well, here are a few very cool places you can catch me virtually for the rest of the year!
Skeleton Hour: Witchcraft
First up, I’m absolutely over the moon to be part of this month’s Skeleton Hour! This is a fantastic monthly series, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of December’s event. And to make it even more exciting, the topic is all about witches! I’ll be part of a panel discussion with Alexis Henderson, Pam Grossman, and Zoraida Córdova, with Lisa Quigley as our moderator. This one is happening on Wednesday, December 9th at 10pm EST (or 7pm PST), so definitely sign up to hang out with us for a bewitchingly cool event!
The New York Ghost Story Festival
Then on Thursday, December 10th at 7pm, I’ll be joining Hysop Mulero and Rudi Dornemann for Daniel Braum’s awesome The New York Ghost Story Festival! Thursday will be the kickoff evening of the festival, and it’s going to be so fun to be involved! I’ll be reading from both The Invention of Ghosts and Pretty Marys All in a Row! You can join us over at the live YouTube page right here!
The Outer Dark Quarantine Readings series
This week, I was also thrilled to spend some virtual time with the incomparable Anya Martin, as we recorded for an upcoming Outer Dark episode. I got to talk about my time in quarantine as well as my favorite books from 2020. I also did a short reading from Boneset & Feathers, so that was exciting too! This episode is slated to air later this month, likely around December 17th, and will also feature a reading from Daniel Braum! It’s always a joy to be part of an episode of The Outer Dark, so definitely keep your eyes peeled for this one!
And that about wraps it up for December events! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.
Happy reading, and happy holidays!
