OUR BRIGHT FUTURE
Youthful readers! I am proud to announce that today I finally broke into the Istanbul high-school circuit, with a reading/ workshop at the British International School—many thanks to Russell Gunnell and loyal super-reader Ebru Kesen for making it happen!
Here is what I learned about the British International students of Istanbul: they are really astute judges of human character. In the Q/A, right between “What’s harder, fiction or nonfiction?” and “Do you ever have writer’s block?”, one young person proved that she had me all figured out by asking, “Do you have a cat?” When I asked how she was able to tell, she tactfully replied: “I know that cats sometimes help people write books.”
Indeed, although my hardworking intern Friday has spent the last year in San Francisco, he continues to do an amazing job helping me with all kinds of book-related work. A big thanks to him and his current guardian – none of the magic could happen without you!
