Today is the day for LOVE: A Philadelphia Affair (on sale now)—and an update on upcoming talks and appearances

Monday, September 7, 2015

With thanks to Avery Rome and Kevin Ferris, who made a home for my stories in the Philadelphia Inquirer, with thanks to Temple University Press for binding these essays and photos into a single volume, and with thanks to some very special early readers—today is the day for Love: A Philadelphia Affair.

It's on sale now.

Over the next few weeks and months I'll be celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Fairmount Water Works (in concert with other speakers), sharing the Free Library stage with Marciarose Shestack, returning to the beloved Radnor Memorial Library, teaching memoir to high school students in Bethlehem, PA, conducting an in-depth memoir workshop in Frenchtown, NJ, joining an exquisite panel of young adult writers, reviewers, and educators at Bank Street in New York, thinking out loud about home with dear friends Rahna Reiko Rizzuto, A.S. King, and Margo Rabb (at Penn), and participating in a variety of other talks and signings.

I'd love to see you along the way.

But, but, there are no appearances in NC!! Would love to see you. I want to do the workshop in May, where will it be? How can I get more details?

Beth Kephart said...

I love that you are interested. Thank you! (ANd NC — I've never done a literary event there; maybe it is time.)

I will let you know more about the memoir workshop a soon as I know. It's a full day. I'm working with Daniel Torday. It's in May and.....

Ooh, what would it take to bring you down here? I would be happy to host a workshop. Wouldn't you like to come south in the winter sometime? ;-)I've been wanting to work with you ever since I discovered you earlier this year.
