Two Authors and a Bookstore, or my chance to meet Sabaa Tahir and Renee Ahdieh

I was in a no-good, very bad mood Tuesday afternoon. I had missed the bus back from class that would have made me early, and the bus that would have at least gotten me back to my apartment on time didn’t show up. (I have a suspicion that the transport system is designed to defeat […]

Celebrations

Here is a story. Once upon a time, there were two girls goofing off during AP History. I mean, they weren’t supposed to be goofing off, but it was ridiculously easy when thirty kids were literally crammed into the classroom–oh, and on top of that, this was the first year of the Laptops.

Looking Ahead to YALLfest

So, maybe you don’t know about YALLfest. It’s nothing to be ashamed about–I didn’t either, up until about this time two years ago.

Coming Home, or In Praise Of The Physical
