Greetings from Indianapolis!


I suppose that most of you know where Indianapolis is. I suppose that most of you could find it on a map if you didn't know where it is. Well, that's where I am. That's right. From way across the U.S. of A. I hear that it might be snowing there soon (if it's not already). Good for you -- it's almost 65 degrees here.

I just sat in meetings with half a dozen famous authors, including Bell Hooks, Hank Stuever, Ted Kooser, and others. It's great to hear an author speak and get to know a little bit about how they think and talk and interact with us normal, non-famous people.

My question to you guys is this -- if you could meet with, talk to, or sit in a big auditorium and listen to any author you know of, who would it be? Why?????

Here's the assignment:
  1. Responding to this post, click on COMMENTS underneath these instructions.
  2. Read through any other previously posted comments.
  3. Click on POST A COMMENT at the bottom of that whole page.
  4. Write your comment, include your FIRST NAME AND LAST INITIAL ONLY and then click on POST ANONYMOUSLY.
  5. Look at the main post again to make sure yours showed up.
  6. Have a great weekend. You have until Sunday night (midnight) to do this.

Mr. B.

p.s. If you respond seriously (my call) and thoughtfully (my call) to another student's comments, you'll get E.C.
