“What I appreciate most about giving readings is that rather than talking about the weather or a television series, people go really deep, really fast, talking about the big shapes in their lives,” explains Nguyen. “By doing that, you’re plunged into this space of considering the overarching patterns of a life: birth, death, journeys, successes, failures, starting over again.” Nguyen will sign and read from her latest poetry collection, As Long As Trees Last, and read cards for people who purchase at least two books from Counterpath. Space is limited to sixteen people, so sign up early.
Counterpath is located at 613 22nd Street; the tarot event runs from 1 to 5:30 p.m., and the reading follows at 7:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.counterpathpress.org.
