We’re already at the middle of February — can you believe it? I hope you’ve picked up your ticket for Jennifer Nettles’ Reading or the Author Q&A at the Alston Information Desk. If you haven’t, you should do it soon!
This year, Arda Collins will be our visiting poet, and I’m very excited to hear her read! Powell’s Books features a blog entry by Arda Collins about her book, It Is Daylight.
In this entry she expresses her love for Mr. Rogers, discusses a wedding in New York, and wants to eat crackers in a bathroom somewhere.
It was like I was a runaway. In my room, I changed out of my dressy clothes for the wedding — my dress, nylons, and heels — and went in the bathroom and washed off my make-up. I put on jeans, a t-shirt, and sneakers, put my hair in a ponytail, and put on my backpack. I was like an orphan, or a scrappy hobo on an adventure. I wrote a note for my hosts and quietly went out the screen door.
Read the rest over at Powell’s Books, here.
Hope you’re getting excited for the Writers’ Festival!
