NEA Big Read Phoenix sounds so exciting, and even though some of it is happening in February, I can still go in March! I will just let my work now before I decide to go or not.
Great! We hope to see you there!
This sounds like quite a noteworthy series of talks. What a great way to uplift indigenous voices!
These sort of events are so important. We’re glad you enjoyed the post!
