VOTM: What’s the most unusual experience you’ve had at a literary gathering?
SARVAS: A young lady who wandered into the reading asked if she could come to the podium and read a random section of my novel. It was so weird I had to say yes. The events coordinator said that in 20 years working there, that had never happened.
