Just Like A Girl Goes to Chicago

And no I didn't catch a glimpse of our new president or Oprah.

I did get a chance to meet contributors Kimberly Dixon, Sage Morgan-Hubbard and Latiffany Wright at Women and Children First Books. Meeting the contributors and hearing them read their work NEVER gets old.
You have not heard a persona poem until Sage lets loose on "If I were a Male" or Big Balls as I like to call it. Latiffany broke our hearts with "Still Breathing". And I personally have a thing for writers that can construct and pull off a convincing kid voice, and Kimberly did just that with "Narcissus" - the best little, self-centered 7 year-old I've heard in a longtime.

As I was getting on the plane this morning, I realized we only have two more readings for 2008. Our next stop is A Room of One's Own in Madison, Wisconsin on December 5th and then we wrap it up in Atlanta on December 12th at Charis Books.

If we are heading to your neck of the woods, don't miss the chance to come out and hear some wonderful writers!

Until Later!
