…was so cool! Some highlights:
Seeing Amiri Baraka read and talk to a packed house at the Decatur Library. He read us some “Lowcoos” (African-American Haikus) and a short story involving a magical clothing laser gun.
Walking by the blue and white “Jewish believers in Jesus” booth. They were giving out high-energy bible quizzes.
Hearing ZZ Packer tell me she won something by getting my name right on Maud’s ridiculously hard Southern Lit Quiz
Drinking real sweet-tea.
Going to an author party in the Old Courthouse.
Riding MARTA (Moving Asses Rapidly Through Atlanta).
Seeing a couple of long-time readers of my work in person at the panel.
I miss the South!
