At the Friends of the Palo Alto Library Local Authors Event, I will be reading one of my audio stories (like at my open mics) at 4pm; I lean toward “The Intellecta-Rhapsody!” I will also sell my book and give away my little 8-page book (The Little Green Man!). The event is tomorrow, April 21, from 1-5pm at the Mitchell Park Community Center on 3700 Middlefield Road.
On April 21 from 1-5pm, at the Palo Alto library on 3700 Middlefield Road, Friends of the Palo Alto Library has a local authors event. We “award winning” local authors will be selling our books. And performing them! Thank you, Tina Gibson, for organizing this and inviting me. (And for helping me design The Karate Queen in my book.) I know a few of these authors, and they are worth your time. Maybe even a little of your money.
Here’s the schedule for the author readings. As an audio prize winner, I shall PERFORM at 3:40. And check out Tina at 1:10 for (I believe) some epic poetry.

Music! Poetry! Prose! And maybe cupcakes!
Tina Gibson, local author and poet and karate master (I know, she showed me) will host local authors at the Main Gallery, 1018 Main Street, Redwood City, CA. Each author gets about 20 minutes or so to read their work. I’ll either perform The Intellecta Rhapsody or some superpowered fights from my Super Bad Hair Day book. Super Holly Hansson might get new fans!
P.S.There will be light refreshments. I will bring some cupcakes that my cousin’s wife baked. I hope they will turn out okay, I put them in an airtight container which I put in the fridge.
