Double Happiness Reading #2
Thank you everyone who joined me tonight for the second reading, which was from Chapter 13, “A Child’s Drawing of the End of the Earth.”

Our next reading will be on Chinese New Year, January 30, a week from Thursday. And then we’ll move through the book like a backpacker on a beautiful mountain trail, at this pace:
