Lorna Dee Cervantes, Victor Hernandez Cruz @ Amherst - Louis Reyes Rivera Lifetime Achievement Award
I'll be leaving tomorrow for Amherst College in order to receive the Louis Reyes Rivera Lifetime Achievement Award along with one of my earliest literary heroes, Victor Hernandez Cruz and Roberto Marquez. So, high honors indeed. I'm stoked! I'll be reading on Saturday, Dec. 2, with the other awardees, Louis, and some great spoken word artists and musicians including my favorite of the up & coming, Robert Karimi. It's free and open to the public starting at 6:45. Just click on the flyer image to see a bigger pic. If you're on the leafy right side of the country, come on out and say hello. Blog buddies always get a book discount.
I've been absolutely inundated with error messages in my email account as someone has lifted my name domain address and spammed it out. I spent most of yesterday erasing. I received about 200 of them. So, if you get anything from ldc.com spelled out in my full name and mostly offering vacation fotos -- it's not from me! And, sorry, sorry for all the sorry spammers in the world. I'm not sure what to do at this point. It does make it hard to find my real email, though.
So, "I'm on the road again..."
