Reading, Horn Book, and Bloomer

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Had a wonderful time at Kennebooks (http://www NULL.kennebooks NULL.com/) in Kennebunk, Maine, with a great audience for the reading and discussion.  Thank you to Ann Carmichael and the Kennebooks staff for all their hard work and great publicity.

Just learned that “Mary Mae and the Gospel Truth” has been nominated for the “Amelia Bloomer List,” (http://ameliabloomer NULL.wordpress NULL.com/) which highlights “books notable for feminist content, quality of writing, and appeal to young readers.”  I am honored they nominated “Mary Mae. . .” for their list.”

Also learned that The Horn Book (http://www NULL.hbook NULL.com/)will be publishing an essay I wrote on “dialect” sometime in 2011.

Please, everyone who visits this site, take a look at the video on YouTube, which you can reach by scrolling down (or sometimes up—I change the date to keep it near the top).  It was produced by Kirsten Cappy’s Curious City (http://visitcuriouscity NULL.wordpress NULL.com/), features young Portland actress Jane Ackermann, and introduces the main themes of the book.
