'PEACH' READING & NEBRASKA EVENTS

Sheldon Art Museum, Lincoln

There's an audio clip of me reading from my story 'Peach' here at the Prairie Schooner site. The clip is taken from a video of me reading from the story. I have to chop up the video and get it up on YouTube - it's about half an hour long. The clip is just a few minutes, though.

I'm heading to Lincoln, Nebraska next week for the 2 day launch event of Prairie Schooner - can't wait! It's a bit of an adventure because I'm going alone. I normally have at least my husband with me. All that aeroplane time to read and think and write. Yay! And Lincoln seems very vegetarian friendly too, which is cool. Nom nom.

Thanks honey :)
I do that all the time - then I block out all exciting events as there isn't usually a hope of me getting to them.
