I was fortunate to have my story "Safety and Well-Being" read by actress Emily Serdahl at Stories on Stage, Davis. The experience was wonderful. Emily did a great job bringing my story to life. The Pence Gallery, where the event was held, was a great venue. In the background you can see a beautiful painting by the artist SHIMO, whose paintings and porcelain surrounded us in the space. i am so grateful to Naomi Williams and all the Stories on Stage staff.
I said a few words before the reading.
Then Emily read the story. She read the story so naturally I felt like she was channeling the character! I was blown away.
If you'd like to watch a video of Emily reading the story (or just put it on and listen), here it is:
