Georgia on My Mind

Yes, I'm thinking about the Peach State, where I'll be in only a few days. On Thursday night, September 11th, at 7:00, I'll be doing a reading of my work in Statesboro on the campus of Georgia Southern University. If you're in the neighborhood, by all means stop by.

On Friday, September 12th, at 3:00, I'll be back on the GSU campus for a reading by three terrific student writers, including Sarah Fonseca, the winner of the 2014 Brittany A. Harbuck Memorial Scholarship in Creative Writing, and the other two finalists for the scholarship.

These two events are linked, as yours truly was honored to serve as judge for this year's scholarship. Brittany (a/k/a "Ally") was a bright and talented young woman, a student at GSU and a budding writer, when her life was cut short by a traffic accident in 2005. Since that time, her mother, the gracious and absolutely indomitable Debi Carey Harbuck, has done her best to give other young writers the chance to share their talents with the world. It's a bittersweet occasion, to be sure, but I'm proud to have known Brittany and even prouder of her mom, and it's humbling to be asked to offer my words and my judgment in this cause.
