Last weekend, Andre and I ventured into the swamps of Jersey to celebrate my birthday and see Willie Nile perform. (He and his band are one of our favorite live acts, but this was the first time we'd seen them as headliners.) I'll be posting about that show soon, but you know how it is: the better the weekend, the worse the Monday. I'm still getting caught up.
In the meantime, though, I wanted to mention a thing or two.
Thing One: this coming Sunday, March 30**, I'll be doing a book signing from 1 to 4 at Books-a-Million (BAM!) in the Springfield Mall. (That's Springfield, Pennsylvania.) If you're in the neighborhood (1250 Baltimore Pike), please drop by.
**EDIT: DUE TO ILLNESS MY SIGNING HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED. IT WILL NOW BE ON SATURDAY 4/5 FROM 1-4.
Thing Two: Remember the Round Robin writing process blog tour? Well, Anne Higgins, the first of my two invitees has posted her response.
As for me, there's a lot of classes to be planned and several big, fraught campus-wide meetings to attend. But I hope to come up for air soon.
