Taurus Season starts today, and I decided to throw a birthday party of sorts for Betty, my favorite character in Storms of Malhado, who definitely was a Taurus. As a Taurus, Betty was very sensual, also really into food, at times perhaps a bit lazy, slow to change her mind, but very deep and loyal in her feelings and affections.
In honor of her birthday I did a reading from Storms of Malhado via Facebook Live, from a very sunny spot in my kitchen. I improvised my own imaginary beach. Because if we can’t go to the beach just yet, we can at least let this book transport us there.
