I'm delighted to be receiving this award in my hometown of Maplewood, NJ, at the conclusion of its annual Ideas Festival. The event will include an interview with Sarah Lester, director of the Maplewood Memorial Library, followed by an audience Q & A and a book signing. At the library, 51 Baker Street, Maplewood, NJ. 973-762-1622.
The Ideas Festival is a great two-week event and I want to give a shout-out to its sponsors and supporters: The New Jersey State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Friends of the Maplewood Library, The Maplewood Library Foundation, The Maplewood Woman’s Club, and Words Bookstore.
