My reading is scheduled for 1:15 in the Aspen Room on Sunday afternoon. Since this year’s conference theme is Arthuriana, I plan to read How the Grail Came to the Fisher King in its entirety, and if there’s time, maybe such episodes of Return of the Grail Bearer as exist at that point. As my Dickens professor used to say, bring a tissue.
The banquet and presenting of awards is 6:30-8:30 Sunday. There’s a remote possibility I’ll have occasion to give acceptance remarks.
I’ll definitely bring stuff to the Bardic Circle at 9pm Sunday in the Aspen Room. I’m not sure what I’ll read yet. Probably scenes from the Rugosa book, maybe the Persephone sonnets, depending on the mood and pacing of the evening.
Monday morning, I fly for home. I’ll be in either air or airports for about the next 12 hours, and then I’ll spend Tuedsay getting put back together by my excellent chiropractor.
