Faire(y) Tales

“We don’t create a fantasy world to escape reality, we create it to be able to stay.”
Lynda Barry

Join me and harpist Hollienea, along with authors Corey Holst, Maggie Secara and Greg Bell, this coming Thursday, May 26th for Faire(y) Tales for Grown-Ups at the Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse.

Why do we so-called adults love to dress up and immerse ourselves in worlds other than our own? Think anime cons, think historic re-enactments, think Renaissance Faire. I’m a fan of all three, and our other three authors are all current or former Faire participants. We’re going to have an author/reader interactive chat about immersion.

Hollienea will begin playing at 6:30pm, and the author chat starts at 7:00. CDs and books will be available for sale.

Tell us what your fantasy world is, and why you like to go there!

    My fantasy is actually a reality I have experienced twice in my life and long to repeat someday: leisurely meandering along Las Ramblas in Barcelona from the Gothic District to the Mediterranean Sea. It is good for the body, soul, mind and spirit.

      That sounds like a wonderful immersion to me.

    I wish you to enjoy every moment of this event and to make your guests interested and happy.
    My fantasy world is full with woods, birds songs and art projects, with no fears and no aging. I suddenly realized I have not been there for very long, so thank you so much for the reminder!

      It’s time for you to make a visit there, Irina!
