68º ~ what's that on the horizon? a high of 91º for today and 96º for tomorrow, yep, that's right, summer 2011, the summer that would not quit!
Dear Readers, it's hard to convey exactly how
excited I am for tomorrow to get here. Tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m., we
launch the Big Rock Reading Series with readings by Nickole Brown and
David Jauss. While, I'm the chief cook and bottle washer of the
operation, I've had tons of help and support from colleagues, friends,
and family, for which I am thankful. (It's amazing how many tiny
details there are to getting a reading series up and running, especially
one that is run on donations only so as not to infringe on anyone's
line-item in the school's budget!)
I couldn't be
happier that Nickole and Dave are reading for us. They both teach
creative writing at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. As the
two-year college across the river, we send a lot of students over to
UALR, so it will be a great collaboration, and I'll get to see many
former students in the audience. Wahoo!
I'll have my trusty Flip camera there and will try to post some clips in
the days after (if I can pick myself up off the bed of exhaustion!).
Until then, let this amazing poster whet your appetite (designed by Amy
Green of Pulaski Technical College's Department of PR/ Marketing).
