EAST WIND BOOKS READING, BERKELEY

EVENT REPORT

Maraming Salamat to Maganda Magazine and Eastwind Books for sponsoring today's reading with Barbara Jane Reyes and Arlene Biala. It was such a pleasure to read with Arlene and Barbara (thanks for the idea and inviting me, Barbara), and of course it didn't hurt that Erika of the fabulous KROAKLAND was the one fortuitously to helm the bookstore that day, which is to say, a fabulous platter of  her Kanom Krok was available for snacks.  Kanom Krok is  specialty Thai dessert made from coconut milk, rice flour, sugar, and salt. As well, it is vegan and gluten-free.  Here's Erika:
