Here’s an updated listing of my upcoming readings. There may be more added to it soon (including something to celebrate d.a. levy’s upcoming 70th birthday). And then… right now I’m giving serious consideration to taking 2013 off from performing and hosting. But I’ll wait until later in 2012 before I commit to that. Meanwhile, the following is copied and pasted from elsewhere (which is why I’m referred to in the 3rd person).
