One week from today, I’ll be heading to Charlottesville, Va., for a few jam-packed days. As I’ve mentioned here before, I’ll be teaching a freelancing seminar at WriterHouse, participating on a short-story panel for the Virginia Festival of the Book, and speaking at a local Jewish congregation.
My seminar handout has been emailed to WriterHouse, and I know what I’ll be reading from Quiet Americans for the panel. This weekend, I’ll finish polishing my presentation for the congregants. In my “things-to-take-with-me” pile I’m carefully placing the ARC I need to read en route so I can write a review that’s due one week after my return.
I’m so looking forward to this trip–and immensely grateful to everyone who is welcoming me in Charlottesville.
