I’m unexpectedly representing Seattle as a UNESCO City of Literature at the Scottish International Storytelling Festival. For the program on Thursday, October 21, I will virtually present two stories about John Okada and the writing of No-No Boy.
I’m learning about the rich oral tradition of the Scottish Storytelling Centre, so this will be a much more informal and relaxed event than previous book talks. No PowerPoint, no images, just telling stories around the virtual campfire from Edinburgh, Dublin, Beirut, and Seattle:
“Global Hearth: Walter Scott and City Writers”
Hosted by Anna Fancett (Edinburgh), with Frank Abe (Seattle), Nuala Hayes (Dublin) and Dima Matta (Beirut).
The program is on Thursday, Oct. 21, from 8:00 to 10:00 pm Scottish time. It’s a ticketed event. #SISFImagine
