Friday before last, I shared the stage at Charis Books and More/Charis Circle with my Lez Talk co-editor, Lauren Cherelle and two of the contributors, Claudia Moss and Krystal A. Smith. We had an absolute ball, and I just want to share a little of that night with you.
Claudia read a selection from “Erzulie’s Touch” and wooed the crowd in English AND Spanish! I’d read this story several times, but hearing Claudia read it was a game-changer. Maybe it’s my new favorite? 🙂
Krystal read from “Two Moons” and every time I hear her read it, I fall a little more in love with Selene and Luna.
Lauren read a little of “Missing” and the audience was charmed by Izola’s southern sensibilities and haunted by the memory of Lilly.
Finally, they let me talk a little bit about the anthology and how we came to work together on this project. I really enjoyed sharing space with these ladies and the amazing audience that night. Black lesbian magic indeed.
