JB in Chicago this week!

Greetings culture lovers, as Bullwinkle used to say. Two events for me this coming week in Chicago represent my first appearances in the Midwest in what seems like a long time. First stop is a workshop event Friday at the Belic Institute of Columbia College Chicago, starting at 10 AM. I’ll be reading from my new novel in progress (forthcoming from Random House in 2012) as well as other earlier work, and talking about craft. And on Sunday at 10 AM, I take the stage for the Chicago Humanities Festival, where I’ll be talking about She’s Not There and Falcon Quinn.

It’s a great treat for me to be able to make this visit to Chicago, and to do these two events, so I hope you’ll all turn out. Tune in next time for our next episode, Upsy-Daisium, or, Venn Ve Get Moose und Squirrel?

    Martin: Don’t you guys know about faxes or e-mails?
    Bullwinkle: Sure. A fax is a little red critter that hunts geese and chickens. Half of them are males, and the other half are “E-males”

    Edward had been my teacher at Johns Hopkins in the winter of 1986. He visited Colby in fall, 2007. As we took our leave of each other, he kissed me on both cheeks and said, "We have done well. You and I."

    Jack was my professor at JHU when I did my thesis, back in the day. After many years, I can now confidently say I finally understand his definition of plot. Which is, of course, "the perturbation of an unstable homeostatic system and its catastrophic restoration to a new and complexified equilibrium."
