After a quick trip to Texas for the most immense wedding I will ever probably attend (in Corpus Christie) I returned to spend a day at The Calatrava Art Museum for the 2010 Young Authors Conference. I had eleven high schoolers in my group from various places around Milwaukee, and shared the responsibilities with Robin, a teacher with MPS. We discussed art, then wrote memoir style pieces and roundtabled them. Last night, I participated in a reading hosted by Next Chapter bookstore in Mequon: Next Chapter Bookshop | “Celebrating one year as your local, independent bookseller!” We were there for Judy Bridges book launch, Shut Up & Write! Other writers who read included Sheila Hanrahan, Sara Rattan and Laurel Landis. We had a great audience and if you have not purchased your copy of Judy’s book yet, they make great stocking stuffers!
