Mid-Week Field Notes–August 31, 2022

Field Notes

Some very quick things:

  • I’m PhinisheD! I graduated Sunday evening with my Ph.D. in Holocaust & Genocide Studies from Gratz College. The commencement ceremony was emotional, including a cantor-like rendition of Hatikvah. I’m dedicating part of Labor Day weekend to getting all the books used in my dissertation off the floor.
  • Ethel Rosenberg is in the house! I received my physical copies last week. Buffalo News called Ethel’s Song: Ethel Rosenberg’s Life in Poems a “fascinating work of historical fiction.” The book officially debuts on September 13.
  • My new novel in verse goes off to my agent in the next few days! Then I have gobs of handwritten pages to type up for yet another YA historical novel in verse.

Have a good week, everybody!
