Friday night I enjoyed a virtual author talk sponsored by the Dallas Museum of Art. It was Texas Bound - stories by Texas authors and read by Texans. I enjoyed the 1-1/2 hours but, I have to say, the live version was always more fun. Virtual is handy. But live - you get the reactions of the audience - the chuckles, the inhale of breath, etc. You don't realize how much you might miss in a story without a crowd.
I shall be ready for live shows when they do happen again. Meanwhile, this was an excellent program.
Hosted by Tina Parker - Kitchen Dog Theater. She was really good and you'd recognize her from various TV shows including Better Call Saul. Fun and effervescent.
"Separation Notice" by Jenny Bhatt Performed by Maryam Obaidullah Baig
"Window Seat" by LaToya Watkins Performed by Kenya Flippin (really good)
"Uncle Rock" by Dagoberto Gilb Performed by Chris Ramirez ( a bit long)
"Women and Horses" by Elizabeth Wetmore Performed by Marcia Gay Harden (dang....she's so good)
"Excerpt from Greenlights" by Matthew McConaughey Performed by the man himself...he's awesome. I reviewed this book awhile ago - quite an excellent memoir.
So - enjoy arts from your local museums, etc. Seek out what's offered and with virtual you can watch when you want, with your own snacks. and adult beverage.
Culture for the mind!
