Ohio Bound for the Erma Bombeck Celebration and Workshop
Walt is staying home to care for the grandkiddos. I've written out lists of significant events and things to do each day, so I've got my fingers crossed that it will be smooth sailing at home.
Tomorrow evening I'll be reading my prize-winning essay, "Honey, Can I Borrow Your Garter Belt," during the Erma Celebration at the Washington Centerville Public Library. Last week, Debe Dockins, the Community Outreach and Development Coordinator, e-mailed that the library will be sending a van to the hotel for us to ride to the event along with featured speaker Tracy Beckerman, a syndicated humor columnist and author. Tracy's Lost in Suburbia column is carried by more than 450 newspapers, 250 websites and reaches an audience of nearly 10 million readers in 25 states.
Thursday through Saturday I'll be attending the Erma Bombeck Workshop on the University of Dayton campus. I'm excited about the speaker line up and the topics. After I return I plan to share some of what I learned during the workshop.
Have a great week, and take time to write!
