The Golden Dress: A Fairy Tale has come into the world!
Come to a real-time reading of the whole picture book on Tuesday, May 22, 8 pm ET. You’ll see the digital form of the book as you hear live audio from L.L. Barkat. After the reading, there will be an audio-only 15-20 minute Q & A time with L.L., for writers and for readers who are intrigued by the writing process and the writing life or the making of The Golden Dress.
Registration for this event will be limited to 100 attendees and will open first for our top-tier patrons, then each descending tier, before being opened to the wider world (potential new patrons). This is, ultimately, a patron-only event.
$5 and up patrons will also be given one free “bring a friend” ticket, as well as access to a recording of the evening, in the event that they cannot attend or want to re-experience.
“There once was a dress. One dress.
When it was new, it was gold and sparkly and shimmery like the glow of certain stars on the darkest night.
It was made by a graceful old woman, whose fingers were as lissome as a ruby-throated hummingbird, and though she sewed quickly, she sewed with care, threading the dress with a hundred silken stitches along every inch of its beautiful seams and hem.
No one knew she had also tucked a small rosy part of her heart into the dress, because every seamstress keeps at least one secret, and that was hers.”
Bookings are closed for this event.
