somebody taught my story

edward hopper "chop suey"


joan downs blogged at the pen america blog about teaching my story "some kind of change" to her adult literacy class in nyc.

i'm pretty seriously floored. it's one of the nicest and most flattering things somebody's ever said about my work. i can't send enough thank you's to her and her students.

i liked the quotes from the class discussion of the story: “He’s dorky and smart. She’s pretty, not smart. But he’d like to hit on her.” “They’ve had an affair.” “No, she’s a tease. She cheated on her boyfriend, but not with him.”
