I'm packing for the Slow Read trip. I'll be driving my mom's car back from Chicago, stopping in Iowa City to see old friends before heading to Lincoln, NE (Constellation Studios, UN-L's Love Library and Union College will each be hosting a public site) and Red Cloud where I'll attend and present at the Cather Spring Conference. Then will begin outdoor projections of the Slow Read as I drive on to Alliance (home of Carhenge), Boulder, Vail, Salt Lake City and Boise. I'm excited and nervous. The Slow Read has been three years in the making and it all begins on the 30th. Follow along on your ipads, computer laptops, at a public site or a one-night pop-up event with the rest of the planet as we all read Willa Cather's 'My Ántonia' together.
