"The people who showed up for these events had usually never heard of me. They came because it was a party at their friend’s house and the friend promised to make those cupcakes they like or was calling in a favor. Nobody wants to give a bad party, and touring this way ensured there would be at least one person other than myself who would be embarrassed if no one showed up.
The readings mostly went very long, over an hour with questions, and people didn’t leave. We were often up discussing until 1 in the morning."
