|Derrick Brown Gives an Inspired Reading|
The connection between a writer and her reader is most often established in silence, in solitude, as the reader takes in the writer's work through the simple act of reading. But authors who know how to give an inspired reading can make a connection that is just as moving, inspiring, and unforgettable.
