Sorry for the radio silence. I have been sleeping, watching TV, listening to books, reading books, managing my emails, playing with Ruby, and dealing with Facebook.
I have listened to Megan Whalen Turner’s The Return of the Thief. I have read a Sitting in St. James by Rita Williams-Garcia. I have perused Carole Boston Weatherford’s Unspeakable: The Tulsa Race Massacre and Lynne Rae Perkins’ The Museum of Everything. I will do posts about them later.
I have watched The Mysterious Benedict Society, Sweet Tooth, In the Heights, and The Mandalorian.
I am working on a book with Lesley Younge. We taught at Dalton. It is a verse novel that used excerpts from Olaudah Equiano’s autobiography, The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, Or Gustavus Vassa, The African. We are excited for the project. Equiano is a voice from the past who witnessed the slave trade.
I enjoy visitors. Email me to schedule a visit.
