Ithaca Diaries–reunion talk

Photo by Vincent Blocker, 1970

Just a note to let you know that I’ll be speaking about Ithaca Diaries at the Cornell Reunion–Friday, June 11, 2010 in Keeton Hall. 

 I’ll be describing Ithaca Diaries, how I came to write it, and what the process was like–ending with an excerpt about our insane graduation, in 1970–and some questions for which I’m still seeking answers.

At the reunion, I plan to videotape classmates about their undergraduate experiences and current views; with their permission, I’ll post tapes and photos  here–along with some of my own impressions of the goings-on.

Reunion or not, I’d love to hear from you–via email, video, photo, Webcam. You can reach me  at harris.anita  at comcast.net or comment, below.

People laughed…in the right places.

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.

Mark S. Hoffman took the photo. Thanks, Mark!
