Lyrics & Dirges Tonight at Pegasus Books Downtown

I’ll be reading with a stellar lineup of writers this evening at Lyrics & Dirges hosted by the lovely and gracious Sharon Coleman.

I’m first up, so get there early or you’ll miss me.

Here we are, in reading order:

Joyce E. Young
Monica Zarazua
Joshua McKinney
Katayoun Zandvakili
Rusty Morrison

We’d love to have you in the audience!

Here’s the link:

Hope to see you there…


  1. Hope your reading went well Joyce! Thanks for inviting me (it was a little too far to go from British Columbia, though a visit to Berkeley is certainly appealing!).


    • Thanks, Silk! It was a great deal of fun reading with such diverse voices and interesting folks. About 20 years ago I was in a writing group with Rusty Morrison, and it was interesting to hear the focus and form her writing is now taking. It’s always an adventure to read to an audience and I enjoy it immensely, but it’s also nice to have the gift of listening to other writers and to be able to go along for the ride on the heels of their words. Afterwards, I got to catch up with old friends who came to hear us. All in all a really pleasant evening.
