I’m in the midst of end of the semester madness at SJSU, but hope to post a recap from our wonderful reading December 6. It was a moving and memorable event, and yes, a good time was had by all.

    What a terrific picture of Carmen reading! I enjoyed all the poems, especially the sounds of languages I did not yet know — a great start to my holiday season, and it was even on St. Nicholas’ Day! It was an honor and a great pleasure to participate.
