June 20th, that is. 7:00 PM. I'll read from my forthcoming verse novel, The Seventh Raven (HMH Spring 2021) as part of Lesley University's Low Residency MFA in Creative Writing. The best thing? I'll be reading with Danielle Legros Georges, the program's director, and Boston's Poet Laureate from 2015 to 2019. She's a wonder. I'll post the link here to the virtual reading when it becomes available.
Bored? Need a laugh? Wishing for some adventure? How about joining me as I read my middle grade novel Evangeline Mudd and the Golden-Haired Apes of the Ikkinasti-Jungle? Illustrations by Andrea Wesson. One chapter at a time. Along the way, we'll talk about the writing life, where ideas come from, and whatever else comes to mind. Spitting spiders? Check! Reformed headhunters? Of course! Dancing apes? Why not?youtube: "David Elliott Reads Evangeline"
