Reading Garcia

Today I will join several of my fellow local writers on stage (one by one, not together), each of whom will read a short piece of our writing. I have chosen to read a vignette I entitled “Garcia,” an introduction to what may become a much longer piece about a planned paid assassination that doesn’t happen because someone else kills the intended victim before the hired killer can do what he was paid to do.  It is gritty, though not as gritty as other things I’ve written. The person responsible for organizing the reading reminded the writers that the audience for our readings are sensitive souls who cannot stomach harsh language. Sigh. If it’s like last year’s event, the audience in the 600-seat theatre will be tiny and widely dispersed. It will be fun, nonetheless.
