I’ll be doing a ‘virtual reading’ and conversation with live callers today, 10am-11am California time, 1pm-2pm Eastern Standard Time (see your local time here: http://bit.ly/minaltime ). I’d love to hear your questions and comments, as well as your own diaspora stories. A few of my relatives who appear in the book may also join the conversation. We’re expecting callers and commenters from around the world so please join us if you like!
