Remembering Hurricane María & Its Aftermath: Two Readings
Join me for two FB Live Readings this month (9/12 & 9/19).
I'm hosting both readings to keep Puerto Rico front of mind as we approach 9/20, the one year anniversary of Hurricane María making landfall on the island.
If you join live or watch the replay of either reading, I hope you will also support my fundraising campaign on behalf of Puerto Rico's Taller Salud:
