Today’s the Day!

I’m excited to be receiving the Arizona Humanities Council Dan Schilling Humanities Scholar award this evening! Kurt and I are picking up Linda (who nominated me) and traveling up to Tempe from Tucson. We’ll be meeting our son, Adam and attending the reception for Rita Dove and the award winners before Rita’s lecture.  I’m looking forward to meeting Rita, a Pulitzer Prize Winner and Poet Laureate. What a great honor to share with my loved ones!
