I’m excited to be reading on Sunday, February 18 at the Hudson View Gardens on the theme of absence and excess. The event is part of the Bloom Reading Series. Other readers for the evening include fellow Jersey City Writer and poet Sarah T. Jewell and fiction writer Aarti Monteiro. This will be the first time I read from a story from my collection about a mother who lost two of her children as babies a year apart from one another. It’s not much for Valentine material but it certainly touches on love from a distance.
