Some very quick things:
- Here’s an interview with Deborah Kalb about my new book, Ethel’s Song: Ethel Rosenberg’s Life in Poems.
- Are you watching the new PBS documentary, “The U.S. and the Holocaust?”
- I have eight writing sessions this week. I love when prompts unearth events and places you haven’t thought of in years. I had forgotten, for instance, that my father had me tested to help me figure out what I should major in. I had forgotten how poorly I sewed until my persistence to learn and do kicked in and I become a master seamstress. I know many writers don’t believe in the power of prompts, but I would encourage you to try them. Just take a look at Sonja Livingston’s Fifty-Two Snapshots.
Here’s to a happy and healthy 5783! Happy New Year – L’shana tova!
