Black Pot Mojo on the Road!
I’m back on the road again reading and discussing Shotgun Lullabies and “Black Women & the Marvelous Real” at Smith College‘s Working Writers forum, exploring how to apply a fiction writer’s craft and plotting skills to real-world and science fictional emergency planning at “What’s the Worst That Could Happen?” the USMA’s 66th SCUSA conference at West Point (think Ebola and the Zombie apocalypse), and celebrating generational wisdom and the power of belief at Skepticon 7 in Springfield, Missouri.
So yes, I’m dusting off of the travelin’ shoes until Thanksgiving, when I’ll see home again! Be well!
I’m putting on my travelin’ shoes and will be reading and giving a writer’s talk at the historic Hammonds House Museum in Atlanta on Thursday, August 14, 6 pm and will be at Onyxcon VI on Saturday, August 16. If you’re in the area, come out and join me. It should be fun and the museum’s collection looks amazing. I’m especially excited to see my friends, including writer Ronda Racha Penrice, and meet the staff, see some quilts, and hopefully catch a glimpse of the work by Dark Matter: Reading the Bones cover artist, Daniel Minter.
With many thanks to artists and conference founders Joseph Wheeler III, Iyabo Shabazz of Onyxcon VI and the wonderful folks at the Auburn Avenue Research Library on historic Sweet Auburn Avenue. Wishing them all the best with their renovations.
