“This is one of the oldest and, I know now, one of the best reading series in the country, and I was honored to be invited. Then I was delighted to discover that the people who run it and attend the events are genuine and smart readers, kind, big-hearted, and a lot of fun to spend a couple of days with on the Gulf Coast. It was one of the best experiences I’ve had as a visiting writer, anywhere.”
