Blue Thread: Connections
Monday, February 4, 2013
@ 7:00 pm
Congregation Havurah Shalom Portland
The Havurah Shalom Book Group and I will explore family, cultural, political, and religious connections in Blue Thread. And we will tackle a central theme in the story: In every time and place, who decides how much fairness is enough? And we will nibble on something delicious as we chew on these topics. Feel free to come as my guest; Havurah would appreciate reservations by Jan. 21st.
Time Travel Troika at Annie Bloom’s Books
Joy Preble, Emily Whitman, and I (a.k.a. the Time Travel Troika) entertained the assembled crowd–and the cat–with our flights of literary fancy in traveling through time and space at Annie Bloom’s on January 12, 2013. Rosanne Parry moderated us to ensure that we didn’t dematerialize. Audience questions, licorice (in honor of Blue Thread), and chocolate were in abundance.
Happy Holidays (2012)
I joined about 70 other Oregon authors on December 2 at the Oregon Historical Society annual celebration–and sales–event from noon until 4. And I won a raffle basket filled with books! Yes! Here’s hoping I see you there next year.
A Crazy Fall (2012)
I had a ball on the Crazy Eights Author Tour, which was the brainchild of Oregon author George Wright. George divided twenty-eight Oregon authors, including Ursula Le Guin and former Oregon governor Barbara Roberts, into teams of eight to visit eight bookstores in eight cities throughout the state. Blue Thread and I were in Baker City on September 14, Cannon Beach on September 22, Redmond on September 28, and Lake Oswego on November 15.
Summer 2012 Delights
Back in June, I gave a talk at Broadway Books about young adult literature, the suffrage banner that launched Blue Thread, and ways to nourish imagination. This trio surprised me with their suffrage song. Go, young suffragists, go!
And in July I was a resident instructor at the Oregon Coast Children’s Book Writers Workshop. Here I am in a lively consultation with Dolores McNulty, at teacher at Whiteaker Middle School in Keizer, Oregon. Students and faculty came from all over the United States.
