My Name in the Local Paper

My parents’ friends emailed and so did a few of mine when they read an article about me in the local paper. And my husband went out and bought two copies of the paper that morning. It’s about the keynote I’ll be giving at the Rundel Public Library in May for the Sokol High School Literary Awards– an award I won when I was a junior in high school. It was an odd experience to be interviewed about both my high school life and also my current literary life in Rochester—which includes the Facebook group and IRL meet ups I started for local writers (in 2014 and 2013, respectively). Still, I very much appreciated the chance to talk about what it means to me to be a writer and to have contributed to building the local literary community. And it was nice to be able to have something that my parents and in-laws could see– a lot of being a writer (for example, reading and writing) is not visible.
