It was an awesome experience to read at Brockton Writers Series!
It was also an honour.
Big up to Farzana Doctor for putting together the most inclusive and diverse reading series in Toronto, Canada, and possibly the whole country. I hope other reading series follow in her footsteps!
Below is the painting that inspired my essay “Embracing My Identity: Reflections on Jorge Gonzalez Camarena’s painting El Abrazo” published in “The Kenyon Review” winter 2010. I read this essay at Brockton Writers Series 17 (April 2011).
