First Wednesday Reading at Blackbird Wineshop

On Wednesday, April 7 from 7-9 pm, I’ll be joining Peter Sears, Jackie Shannon-Hollis and Brian Christopher for a reading and wine-tasting co-hosted by Oregon Literary Review and Blackbird Wine Shop in Portland, Oregon. Madal

I’ll be reading a selection from Sacred Threads, an ethnographic memoir (almost finished!) about my experiences as anthropologist, activist and mother in a Brahman family in rural Nepal.

Read more about the participants here.  Blackbird Wine Shop is located at 4323 NE Fremont.  This event is open to all those 21 and older.
