The Toledo Train Station
May 10, 2018I’m headed back to the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature symposium this month, which means I’ll revisit the Toledo Train Station. There’s a 5-hour layover in the wee hours of the morning. It’s very Hopper-esque.
While at the symposium, I’ll read a personal essay on Pathological Midwestern Niceness (PMN), read from my current work-in-progress (a sequel to “Heaven” and “Earth”), and co-lead a "therapy" session on PMN, “Use Your Words.” And re-meet lots of wonderful folks whom I met for the first time at last year’s session.
A highlight will be the conferring of an award on Tim O’Brien, one of the contemporary Midwest’s eloquent voices.
My resource tip this month is Literary Hub (lithub.com). You can subscribe to a daily or weekly version, or just visit their website. All sorts of news and views from the literary world.
In keeping with the new regulations from Europe about online promotions, I will be deleting any personal information I may have about you as a result of the recent book giveaway and only keeping your email address in my records. I will never share that list in any way.
Happy Rest of May!
