A look back


Back home after a week on the road.  And what a great week it was!  I spent two days on the beautiful campus of Berry College in Rome, Georgia.  On over 26,000 lush green acres, Berry is a fascinating school where many students work on campus in roles that keep the campus going.  There’s a dairy farm, and herds and herds of deer live on campus.  The students are bright and curious, and I really enjoyed sharing conversation with them about the issues explored in Hijas Americanas.  I spoke to a book club on Wednesday night.  On Thursday, I headed to the University of Maryland in College Park for a workshop sponsored by the women of Lambda Theta Alpha.  It was a great session– and they had fabulous questions (and I really loved UM)!  On Saturday, I flew to Houston for the Latino Book and Family Festival for a reading and signing.  I was able to hear Michelle Herrerra Mulligan read from her book, Juicy Mangos.  She’s fiesty and smart and a fabulous writer.  I also was able to actually meet some great women that I have known via phone calls or over e-mail which was such a delight.   I am home-based this week but hit the road next week for Tennessee and New Jersey.
