Seen Reading: twitter + community engagement + microfiction + strangers + literary voyeurism + Julie Wilson. I’ve just got so much love for #seenreading
Julie and I chatted about The Love Lettering Project earlier this year (you can see here!) and we’ll be chatting once more at the City Hall Toronto Public Library Branch on Wed Nov 14, 2012 from 1-2 pm.
Julie Wilson’s compulsion to observe people reading on streetcars and subways led to “Seen Reading,” a collection of microfictions based on these sightings. Who is the reader and what does a book tell us about him or her? Wilson and Lindsay Zier-Vogel, writer and creator of The Love Lettering Project, offer answers to those questions.
