As of Tuesday (2/7) my new book, Talking Pictures, has gone to press. I will have copies in hand for the AWP Conference at the end of the month. Yippee! I love the cover (which I'll have to upload from a different computer).
Meanwhile, on Tuesday night SUNY, Oneonta hosted Arthur Flowers--novelist, griot storyteller supreme. He brought out all the bells and whistles (and conch shells and harmonicas and kalimbas!). A mesmerizing event. We look forward to having him back again, maybe after his new novel (from which he read excerpts) is published.
