Writers On Writing / George Catsi on reading for an audience
‘When people read a book with you as the author, you are invisible. When they come to hear you read you are not invisible. So don’t act like you are and try to hide by not looking at the audience. Look up and let them see your face and eyes and allow everyone to connect with you.’
