The Snow Report



Snow! Snow! Snow! A fresh 18 inches on top of the last 18 inches or so that fell in December. I don’t think it will melt until April. As a result, the kids have had an unexpected break. They’ve been out of school since Wednesday, and won’t go back until Tuesday.

Boy, do I hate using the snowblower, but I am thankful I invested in one.

Check out the Poetry Foundation’s Essential American Poets: Robert Hayden. One of the most engaging podcasts I've heard in a long time.

The schedule for the Virginia Festival of the Book is up. Woo hoo! I’m thrilled to be a part of this event.

Congrats to Aimee Nezhukumatathil and Evie Shockley on their recent publications: Lucky Fish and the new black
