Dearest valued ticketholder,
In light of the heartbreaking events playing out in the world right now, thousands of authors and artists globally are rescheduling their events this week to observe Blackout Tuesday, a time for listening and learning, and looking for solutions for fighting racial inequality.
Jennifer Hillier, Samantha Bailey and myself will be joining them as we mute ourselves in order to raise and amplify black voices at this time. We hope that you will join us in this crucial endeavor.
As such, our virtual Zoom event for tonight has been rescheduled for the 16th of June at 6:30pm. The event will be recorded in case this new date conflicts with any other prior commitments you may have so you absolutely won’t miss out on any of it. If you can’t make the event but have a question you would have liked to ask, please mail me and I’ll direct it to Jennifer or Samantha on your behalf.
