Okay, where are we? Right now I'm reading Robert Heinlein's novel Starship Troopers. If I don't finish it tonight, it'll be tomorrow. It's got all of that breezy Heinlein speed whisking along in a masculine military world. And it won the Hugo Award for the best science-fiction novel of 1960.
I'm about halfway through the June issue of Poetry magazine. Standouts thus far are Paul Hoover, Erin Belieu, & D. Nurkse.
And I want to put in a plug for The Reading Room, a family owned & operated bookstore located in the Salmon Run Mall in Watertown, New York, right alongside Sears. They've been in business almost one year. They stock all kinds of books, especially books for kids of all ages. You'll find a special section that features dozens of local authors (I had no idea there were so many). They also host many book-related events, such as programs for kids, writing workshops, & book-signings by local authors. It's a friendly atmosphere, run by folks who love what they are doing. So, if you live anywhere near Watertown, head on over & check it out. Support your local bookstores! Also check out their Facebook page, where you'll find a list of upcoming events.
So that's it for today. Local poets, there's a meeting of the Potsdam Poetry Club (PPC) at the Jernabi Coffee shop tomorrow afternoon at 4:30. I'll see you there!
