Friends in the Time of Quarantine
It was the best of times, and it was the most virtual of times with GeekGirlBrunchRDU. For the month of May, we had two virtual socials: A Virtual Story Hour on Dark Elves & Magic with Author Rowan Canterbury and a JackBox party.
In the Virtual Story Hour with Author Rowan Canterbury, on Saturday, May 9th at 2 PM she read a portion of her novel The Three Faces of Zembeth (Part 1 of the trilogy), answered questions, and imparted knowledge related to publishing, writer’s block, and perseverance.
What comes before part B? A PART-AY!!!! On Saturday, May 17th at 12pm, we experienced the magic of a Jackbox Zoom Party. There were shenanigans, laughter, drawing, murder and trivia involved! We had the entire party pack to choose from and we made a ruckus.
Thank you all who were able to attend these events! Below are some updates on all future planned socials.
