Some random shiny objects I wanted to bring to your attention:
– I’m a few days late with this, but the latest issue of The Biographer’s Craft hit inboxes earlier this week. Editor Jamie McGrath keeps it short, sweet, and always interesting: this month features a piece on Olivia Gentile and her book on Phoebe Snetsinger, Life List: A Woman’s Quest for the World’s Most Amazing Birds, an update on the fledgling Biographers International Organization, a short remembrance of the late David Herbert Donald, and — one of my favorite pieces — a new entry on writers’ work spaces. Plus, you’ll get updates on new and recently acquired biographies, and Jamie’s running commentary.
You can get the June issue right here. And you should do so right now.
– I’m getting ready to make a quick trip up to New York City next week to hook up with Agent J so we can attend another meeting regarding Project Blue Harvest. I still don’t want to say too much until we’ve got something firm to report, but suffice it to say, this one should be fun. I’m looking forward to it, and it’s always a pleasure to catch up with Jonathan.
