Thanks again to our amazing hosts at University of California San Diego for bringing my fellow writer Bao Phi and I out to a great audience at the International Center.
It was standing room only with almost 200 people throughout the evening as Bao Phi and I performed both classic and all-new pieces.
As I mentioned during the reading, this was a historic occasion: It is the first time I've formally read my work in California. I also had a chance to demonstrate several new pieces from my current book-in-progress.
It was a wonderful time and I'm deeply appreciative to everyone who came!
