Hello, good folks!
Ah, I have to say I'm quite excited it's the last day of August. Oh, how I love September and fall and knitting and cider and cooler days.
The fall also means a new season of Talking Volumes- a book club put on my The Loft Literary Center, MPR and the Star Tribune. It's a book a month for four months and the authors come and share their writing process and ideas. I love hearing people talking about their craft. First up is A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, winner of the Pulitzer Prize. An entertaining, complex and real take on a music producer. The subject sounds a little bizarre, but the characters are the real deal.
The tea leaves is coming along. One sleeve down, one to go and then that dreaded picking up stitches for the button band!
One of my other favorite things is music. I'm hosting a little giveaway for a CD and a cookbook. You can share a few of your favorite fall tunes to enter! What have you been listening to?
