It was a good Saturday, finishing up a manuscript about Hollywood and sending it off to my expert reader. Not to be too demanding, I asked her to get it back to me by Thanksgiving because, you know, if I don’t have time to give thanks why should anybody else? Seriously, though, I have been working all year to meet self-imposed deadlines and have been succeeding. With luck, I’ll meet my December 31 deadline to deliver the manuscript to my editor. Chanuka? Forget about it. Christmas? Not likely. New Year’s Eve? That’s a definite maybe, but only if the manuscript is on its way.

What’s next? The National Council of Teachers of English conference in Atlanta, November 18-19. I’ll be speaking on diversity with a stellar panel (Duncan Tonatiah, Nancy Bo Flood, Christine Taylor-Butler, and Cynthia Levinson) on Friday, November 18, in Room B217 from 2:30 to 3:45. I hope to see some of you there. I’ll be autographing books on Saturday from 9:00 to 10:00 in the Boyds Mills Press booth (#408).



Happy Halloween!

¡Feliz los dias de los muertos!
