I’m still working on my essay for the “Joy” essay contest for the Creative Nonfiction Journal, and I need to spend a couple more hours on it today to finish it and send it in, so this blog post will be short. I’m so grateful to two writing buddies for critiquing my essay and giving me feedback—NancyKay Wessman and Sally Palmer Thomason.
And speaking of creative nonfiction and Sally Thomason, her new book is out:
Delta Rainbow: The Irrepressible Betty Bobo Pearson (University Press of Mississippi)
You can ORDER IT HERE.
I’m looking forward to hosting Sally for a literary salon in our home again soon, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing her at bookstores and events in Memphis, Oxford, Greenwood, Jackson, and other places in the coming months. She did an incredible job sharing the stories that have endeared Betty Bobo Pearson to so many people and will surely create new fans as people read this book.
On a personal note, we’re leaving for Paris this Friday (yes!) so I might not blog as regularly for a couple of weeks. I appreciate my readers so much and have tried to post faithfully three times a week for the past nine years. Please forgive me if I take a break!
