We are off to Austin tomorrow after work. I’m not looking forward to the drive but I can’t wait to get there and see one of my best friends. I can’t wait for the endless conversation and the laughter.
Oh yes, and the book festival! I’ve printed off the schedule and am hoping I’ll get to see Sandra Cisneros and Alexander McCall Smith. There’s a poetry slam, a panel of Latino writers and lots of booksellers.
I feel like the kids in the Christmas poem who had visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads except my visions are of books of fiction and poetry. An endless stream of books all vying for a spot on my nightstand.
I hope everyone has a super weekend. Read a lot and I’ll catch up with you soon.
