I See Myself on the Porch!

Here's an idea for promoting Mississippi Writers in Residence!

Picture Faulkner's spread in Oxford:
a writer in the attic, horse barn, cook house, parlor, back pasture, etc.

I see myself assigned the porch
where I can do double duty as booktalker and greeter!

Thank you so much for that! And you'd be perfect at Mr. F's house!

I could type and rock up a storm at the same time, Nan! All I need is a little table for my iced tea! ;D

I read an ARC of Rocket Man by this author a couple of months ago.

I remember touring Faulkner's home when I was on a college trip (mid 70s). I'd taken a Faulkner seminar and then we traveled to MS and NO over Spring Break with our professor. Great trip, great memories. One thing I remember is the mark on the wallpaper behind Faulkner's bed - apparently it was where his head rested while he wrote sitting up. . . I wonder if that's fact or legend, lol.

Happy New Year!

So, what did ya think of the book Mary?

What a great trip Mary! We have one of those marks on our leather sofa where hubby leans his head as his book gets heavy! ;D I raise my hand for fact.

I guess the sanitorium was not on the schedule, but it was probably still standing in Byhalia. I would like to know if he wrote on those walls. Happy New Year!
