Where bones of my wits will lie at peace

Hi everyone,

The boxes of my papers recently placed on a 10-year loan to the Meyer Library on the campus of Missouri State University in Springfield have been processed and are now available for students and others interested in looking through some of my work. Should anyone want to find them, the collection number is M131, Dates 1972-2018. I don’t believe the Finders Aid is online yet but will let you know if it becomes available. At some point not far off there will be a video interview and an audio interview of me talking about my work placed with the collections.

The bulk of my earlier papers are archived in 37 boxes and 4 binders in the Philip A. Sadler Research Collection of Literature for Children and Young Adults housed in the James C. Kirkpatrick Library at University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. Here’s a link to the collection.

An interview for the archives

Hi everyone,

On Tuesday Tom Peters, Dean of Meyer Library on the Missouri State University campus in Springfield, came over to do a video/interview about my work for their archives. This was the second session about my writing. After editing, the videos will be added to the collection of manuscripts and correspondence that I recently placed in the MSU archives. Both interviews ran over an hour so if you should ever want to watch them, better take your computer to a comfortable chair.

The first time Tom interviewed me was for the MSU series, OZARK VOICES. That was in September 2014 and was also a long one. Here’s the link to it. I’m #23. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLyugBRJhQ4EwftBGQOCn2HDmPk2-9cAMd .

This afternoon I have more than a dozen errands to run. Getting set to goo foff is serious business!
