My calendar for March through August is filling up quickly. In addition to the events and conferences I’ll be attending (listed below), I have my 45th reunion from Simmons College in Boston the last weekend in May. Plus, of course, in no particular order, theater tickets, routine doctors’ appointments, visits to my parents in Florida, chasing rare birds, watching all birds, writing, movies, gardening, keeping up with emails and Facebook, guest blogs, breakfast and lunch with other women writers, volunteer shifts and meetings, Pesach and Shavuot, a few local tentative events I’ll add when they’re no longer tentative.
If you’ll be in any of the cities I will be in, let me know and maybe we can meet up. Or invite me to speak at your organization, book club, synagogue – there are still a few blank squares on the calendar.
