Last night’s reading about my insane college graduation–(featuring a walkout, two demonstrations and three arrests–at the graduation, not the reading) went well. People laughed…. In the right places. That’s me, in the blue sweater (duh!) with Neil O’Hara, facilitator of The Write Stuff, my wonderful writers group, in the background. The presentation was sponsored by the Libary and the Lincoln Review, where I sometimes write about the arts. Other readers included Susan Coppack, Mary Ann Hales, Ellen Morgan and Manson Solomon. Here’s a link to the Write Stuff Blog, http://lincolnwritestuff.blogspot.com/ which, in turn, links to this and other write stuffers’ blogs, courtesy of blogmeister Geoff Moore.

Welcome the blog site of Ithaca Diaries–a book in progress about college in the tumultuous 1960s.
Ithaca Diaries is a coming of age memoir based on journals I kept as an undergraduate at Cornell University at a time when protests, politics, and violence engulfed me, my college, and the nation. It’s often laugh-out-loud funny (well, how does an impressionable 18-year-old girl deal with Fat Phil the Wet Kisser and a revolution at the same time?) but it also provides meaningful insight into the process of political and social change that led to many of the benefits we are reaping today.
On this blog, I’ll be writing about the process of completing and, I hope, publishing Ithaca Diaries. I’ll ask questions, share content–and collect insight, advice, opinions and memories from everyone who happens in.
