Kansas (and Maine)
I have been trying to add this to the schedule which is on my website and for some reason can't get it in. So I will just announce here that at 11:30 AM on December 6th (Saturday) I will be speaking at the Civic Center, 400 N. Penn, in Independence, Kansas. 11:30 AM, free to the public, with book-signing afterward.
I'll be in Independence for the opening of a musical based on my book GATHERING BLUE presented by the William Inge Center for the Arts.
It is NOT EASY, by the way, to get to Independence, Kansas, from Cambridge, Massachusetts. So it will be a long day of travel both coming and going. But I am used to that.
This past weekend we went up to the house in Maine, and my son and grandsons--and cat--joined us there. Alfie had never met a cat before, and the cat, Sam, had never met a dog, so there was a certain amount of curiosity combined with paralyzing fear on both sides. GIven a lengthier visit, they would have come to terms with it. But during the night on Saturday the water pump broke: so no water on Sunday. And no plumber available on Sunday in a tiny Maine town. Finally we packed up children, dog, cat, cars, and went home, after flushing all the toilets with bottled Poland Spring water. (That may be a First for Poland Spring)
Now: to start getting ready for Thanksgiving. Lots of company coming here.
