    Hello Paul,

    I am interested in being a reader/workshop leader at Cascadia in Anacortes, particularly given that an old friend is reading there. William O’Daly and I have co-featured at readings in Sacramento and Davis, California, and appeared in radio interviews in Los Angeles. Additionally, my last book, Gone to Gold Mountain, which is very much centered on a social justice theme involving 19th century Chinese immigrant labor, was nominated for both a Washington State Book Award and an American Book Award. During the past year I’ve given two very successful persona poem workshops in Kirkland and Tacoma, and would be willing to do the same at Cascadia in addition to a reading.

    If you need more information from me, please let me know.

    Best,
    Peter Ludwin

    Paul, is there a book fair associated with this event? If so, we would like to be part of it.
