You’re invited: Utah Book Festival Panel – October 11

Hey everyone, I wanted to give a quick update for anyone living in the Salt Lake Area.

Tomorrow evening, October 11, I’ll be participating on a panel as part of the Utah Book Festival.

The panelists, who all (myself being the exception) have more credentials and accolades than I can list here:

Sheryl Gillilan is the Executive Director of Art Access, a program that provides opportunities in the arts for people with disabilities.  She has a long, long list of credentials.

Peta Owens-Liston is one of the founders of the What I Thought I Saw project. The book from the project is one of the most fascinating things I’ve read.

Sandy Anderson teaches poetry workshops at the Utah Independent Living Center.  She’s been doing this for a while, and it is wonderful work.  She recently published her fourth anthology of work by people with disabilities.

And me.

There’s going to be a moderator and everything.  Angela M. Smith, Assistant Professor of English and gender studies at the University of Utah, and author of Hideous Progeny (she’s bringing me a signed copy!)

Hopefully I won’t embarrass myself too badly.  I think it’s going to be fun. I’d love to see you there!

    Josh, I just read the blurb for Dr. Smith’s book voer at Amazon, and this is going on the wish-list! This sounds like a fascinating read! Have fun at the festival!

    I’ll be there (in spirit, if not in person (i.e. barring the inadvertent stumbling upon a hole in the space/time continuum that allows me to be in two places at once without being missed, I shall be there only in spirit)(but with bells on)).
