I've been at the AWP conference most of this week, and wasn't able to post today's post until now (5:29 est). I'm here at the Center waiting for tonight's Maxine Hong Kingston event. I'll post a review and brief video clip of that reading on Monday. In the meantime, here is a pleasure for your ears: The Writer's Center's inaugural podcast. It features Alice McDermott and Shannon O'Neill discussing McDermott's novel Charming Billy, which is of course the subject of this month's BookTalk event on February 20. Have a listen!
