Personal note...

The reason I haven't yet responded to any of your excellent comments is that I've been swamped yesterday and today with correspondence and phone calls about my Arkansas Literary Festival gig. As soon as I'm caught up with all of that, I'll be getting back to you -- and I'll post my schedule for the two ALF sessions.

Arkansas Literary Festival schedule...

I have my schedule now for the Arkansas Literary Festival on April 5-6, 2008, in Little Rock. [I don't have actual titles for my two events yet -- that will have to wait till the official brochure comes out.] Here's the info...

1. Saturday, April 5, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Historic Arkansas Museum, Cromwell Gallery, 2nd Floor

[Verbal self-defense workshop for teenagers and young adults, 14 and up]

2. Saturday, April 5, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Main Library, East Room

[For this one I'll be reading from Twenty-One Novel Poems, discussing science fiction as a genre (and sf poetry as a subgenre), and taking up the question of whether science fiction qualifies as "real literature." Just me and the audience and a moderator.]
