The Akhmatova Journals will have a Zoom reading on Sunday, October 18, at 3 pm, presented by Zephyr Press and Boston Book Festival. Register here.
What am I working on now? How about the book for a new musical in collaboration with In Good Company? Radiance of the Day tells the story of current social and political challenges faced by immigrants in Lawrence, Massachusetts, set against the backdrop of the famous 1912 Bread and Roses textile workers strike. I feel really fortunate to be collaborating with this great group as well as with Eureka Ensemble and the brilliant composer J. Andrés Ballesteros.
Radiance runs May 29-30 and June 5-6 at locations to be announced. Stay tuned.
