Sweet News

Right now, the snow is whirling like a dust storm in a frenzy of wind.  Once again, Cape Cod has weather. Friday night, Stephen Russell of Wellfleet Market Place, which features an uncommonly fine collection of books on its shelves, hosted a reading and launch for As Sweet as Honey.  In an evening full of warmth, in a room filled with friends, and local writers and readers, after Stephen’s moving introduction, I read from the book, and chatted with writer Kathy Shorr on stage about Salman Rushdie’s genius articulation of  imaginary homelands.

I signed some books, and continued the evening doing what I love, talking about books.

How often in our electronic worlds do we not simply talk about the books we are reading and have read.

The next evening, I attended a reception to welcome the new director of The Fine Arts Work Center, who takes the helm of a program devoted to giving time and space to emerging writers and artists.  Seven months to dream and work, year after year since 1968.

I completed my first book there, and began the second.  Would that I could make some headway into the fourth.

This is an article written by Sarah Shemkus for the Cape Cod Times.  Over tea, we spoke about writing.  Hope you enjoy!
