This Friday, March 17, I’ll be reading from 88 Names and taking questions on Microsoft’s AltspaceVR platform. The virtual venue opens to the public at 5:30 Pacific Time and the reading will start at 6:00.
Although Altspace supports virtual reality headsets, you don’t need one to attend the reading—there’s a “2D mode” that lets you log in using a regular PC and keyboard. All you need to do is download the app from the AltspaceVR homepage, sign up for a (free) account, and go through a brief set-up process/tutorial to create your avatar and learn how to move around on the site. Once that’s taken care of, you can RSVP for the event here.
See you on Friday!
