What next for that Jenny Boylan?
Well, this coming Friday I’m receiving some kind of award at U Mass Amherst, something called “Continuing Stonewall’s Legacy”. I’ll be giving a short talk as part of that– this is for a pre-graduation celebration for the GLBT students there.
Next day, May 16th, I’m giving a reading at Pride and Joy bookstore in Northampton, at noon.
Then it’s home to Maine, and summer. I’m back at work on Falcon Quinn, book 2. And shepherding my family through the final weeks of grades 7 and 9, respectively. And getting ready to put the boat in the water. And thinking about moving into the summer house. And contemplating a dinner of fresh lobster, and fiddleheads, and cold white wine, on the porch.
Next public performance after that’s at the Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square, Cambridge (Our Fair City), on June 9.
Looks like there’ll be another op/ed from me in the bloody New York Times this week, too, so, as Bettie Davis used to say, “Fasten your seat belts, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!” Actually, this ride will be smooth. I am feeling satisfied and happy with the writing, the teaching, the family, you know: the world. “O Earth, you’re just too beautiful for anyone to realize you.” That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
