ROSES. My, my, my have I had a fantastic week. First, I got a two book offer for Two Rivers and the next novel. (You all know how long I've been waiting for this :) But also, a curator at a southern art museum contacted me about submitting a proposal for a possible photo exhibition. I feel like I've been at such a standstill for so long...I hardly know what to do with myself! Pinch, pinch.
This week is going to be busy...teaching and the usual ballet, gymnastics, grading etc... and on Thursday night I'm speaking on a panel at The Roundhouse Theatre in Bethesda about the adaptation of A Lesson Before Dying. It should be a fascinating discussion. My approach has more to do with what happens when a novel is stripped to its bare bones. The other speakers, I believe, will be addressing the more thematic concerns of the novel/play.
