New plans in the works for me to give a talk at The Writers Place in Kansas City. Tentative date is November 8. Title and details still to be developed.
I’m delighted, and grateful to my longtime friend and colleague, TINA HACKER, for facilitating the event. SANDY and I lived in Kansas City almost ten years, but we moved back home to Springfield 49 years ago. Until recently I had never been a member of TWP, which is a strong organization with many successful authors and poets on its roster. Current president is Missouri’s current Poet Laureate, MARYFRANCES WAGNER. I know Tina, BARBARA LOOTS, and maybe a few others, so all the more reason why I look forward to becoming better acquainted with more of Missouri’s finest writers. More when I know more.
