Below is the list of various readings and panels I have been a part of over the years. Sad to note how many of these venues—particularly brick-and-mortar bookstores—are now gone. Also of note is that participation in these “in-person” activities stopped in the spring of 2020 and are now mostly over Zoom I guess.
