So Seriously Beside Myself

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!

Rest assured, 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).

Find us on Facebook, too!
