First, a big thank you to George Kalamaras and Mary Ann Cain, for inviting to Indiana University of Purdue at Fort Wayne. I couldn’t have asked for better weather–sunny, lovely, crocuses! daffodils and forsythia, oh my! Had a long lovely walk with Bootsie and Mary Ann and I was super well taken care of–delicious meals, great conversation and it was a wonderful time. I appreciate all who turned out for the reading on Wednesday as well as those who came to the workshop. Many many thanks.
I wish you all a blessed weekend; for the folks who celebrate it, Happy happy easter! This year I am especially blessed and have much to celebrate. I won the Longleaf Press Chapbook Prize and my chapbook, Everyday Chica, will be published in the fall! I just learned last week but I am still on cloud nine. I will share more details as they materialize.
My last road trip of the spring starts Easter Monday; I’m off to my old stomping grounds in New Jersey. Will be on a panel marking the 30th anniversary of the Mariel Boatlift; I’ll be reading from my book. It’s free and open to the public. Check the Calendar of Events tab for details.
