GALLERY: “Becoming a Teacher” Launch

It was pouring in Seattle.  I stood up onstage at Hugo House, cracked the spine of a brand-new nonfiction book, and started to read.  It was the launch of “Becoming a Teacher” from In Fact Books / Creative Nonfiction, and I had the privilege to read my essay from the collection, which is about teaching in China and cross-cultural immersion education.  I read alongside two fellow contributors, Deborah Meltvedt and Michael Copperman (whose memoir of teaching in the Peace Corps just came out) and then had an interesting q&a session with the audience, many of whom were also teachers and writers.  I’ve posted a few photos from the event above.
