Shameless Self-Promotion


As we approach the end of the year, I wanted to name two upcoming events that I am involved in.

1) PEN New England Reading on June 7th @ 4:00 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble in Boston. I will read excerpts of my novel in progress. The information is below.

2) Seussical the Musical - June 6th and 7th @ 7:00 p.m. It is at Fourth Presbyterian Church in South Boston. 340 Dorchester Street. I have spent the last ten Tuesdays teaching 70 elementary school kids to sing and dance.

Both events are free and open to the public. You are more than welcome to attend. Both are good, clean fun. I am firm believer in life-long learning. These are two examples of ways I am still striving to increase my understanding of English (writing and literature) and hone my skills as a director. IT NEVER STOPS and it shouldn't.


Here is the information on the reading:
PEN/New England and U. Mass Boston will sponsor a reading by a six local students from the Lesley MFA Program in Creative Writing

Place: BU Bookstore (BU Barnes & Noble in Kenmore Square )
Date/Time: June 7, 2008, 4:00 pm.

Readers:

· Jennifer Badot, poetry
· Jessica Belt, nonfiction
· Philip Holland, fiction
· Alyssa Lovell, poetry
· Sareeka Rai, fiction
· Sean Walsh, young adult fiction

Lesley MFA Program Director Steven Cramer will introduce the readers read briefly from his own work.

Sponsored by PEN New England and coordinated by Barbara Perez, an MFA student at U. Mass Boston, and Joyce Peseroff, Director of the MFA Program at U. Mass Boston, the reading series is intended to connect students, faculty members, and artists in Boston area, and to foster an atmosphere of mutual inspiration.

Mr. Mauser and I ran the marathon last year. I trust that he will lighting on the floor and have a nice mid-range jumper.

As far as signs of inspiration, I vote for y= mx + ballin'
