Looks like I won’t be participating in next Friday’s reading after all. The venue isn’t quite right. GROWING CHOCOLATE deals with the death of child, cutting and other serious themes not suitable for family night at a Y! There will be other opportunities.
Brings up the question of when to say ‘yes’ to readings. Not all venues are suitable. You have to think about your target audience – who are your readers? Sometimes you have to turn things down.
