It was a great pleasure to help wrap up the first-ever Summer Blend Book Club created by Michel Martin of NPR's Tell Me More. If you haven't read these books, you must. You will love them. You will often laugh. Check out the interview here.
I'm excited to be a part of this new series CNN Dialogues on Race moderated with Wolf Blitzer on August 31 at 7PM in Atlanta. Other panelists include actor Edward James Olmos, Survivor winner Yul Kwon, and Professors Kris Marsh, and Dana White. For ticket information visit the university website.
Okay, yes, I'm a little bit behind. I know summer officially started in June but I haven't felt it. I've spent the last few weeks tying up loose ends from the book tour and the Festival, clearing off my desk, dealing with some difficult stuff, and trying to figure out my next steps as I work on the new book. Today is the first day I feel like the pressure cooker lid is off and the long list of to-do's is actually do-able.
The weekend was peaceful and fun: a trip to the market, dinner with friends, a movie and there were a couple of naps involved too. Suddenly, my life looked like my life again pre-publication. It was nice.
And plus, there's the new ribbon I have in my typewriter which I am about to work on now--trying to spark some new thoughts using a new (classic) tool. Okay, now back to the words!
