Vija listens as Liz and others read from their short stories and is delighted to meet two Latvian sisters who found the event on EventBrite. The sister who lives in New York thought a reading would be fun for the sister who's visiting from Latvia and got a special treat: Vija read not only from her Me Too story, "No Outlet," but also from her story, "Dzintra's Tale," from Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, inspired by memories of her own Latvian forebears.
