I had to change the format of this listing, thanks to Blogger's (my platform) unfortunate decision to require html coding to do even formerly simple tasks like add a sidebar of speaking engagements. That's beyond me and at this point, I'm not taking time to learn how to do that. I will provide this roster as a live link at the top right side of the blog, that's the best that I know how to do it for now. Also, Blogger got rid of the email notification service about new posts. I regularly get queries about what happened, and that's the answer. I don't know a work-around at this point. I thought technology was supposed to advance, not go backwards :-) Anyway, here's the 2023 slate of gigs, and I'll update it as needed.
