True stories told live tonight!
Tonight I am going to tell a story as part of the ‘True Stories Told Live’ event at 7pm at the National Library in Parnell, Auckland. I am freaking out as usual, and am hoping that I won’t forget everything I was planning on saying. I wrote a 6-page comic of my story as a way of securing it in my memory. If you come tonight, I’ll have copies of that comic that I will give to you for a gold coin or copious compliments koha.
Talking of compliments, when I went to Washington D.C. in the late nineties, there was a homeless man who sat on 18th S (I think – it’s been a while). He was called The Compliments Man, and he’d give you lots of compliments in exchange for a few dollars. Even though I knew he was doing it for the money, I still basked in the shower of lovely things he said to me, and I was amazed at all the different things he thought to say to people who passed him by.
Anyway, here is a sneak preview of the story I’m going to tell:
If you can’t make it because you live on the other side of the country or the world, I am happy to send you a copy for $2 plus postage, which is probably $1.20 in New Zealand. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
