Hey TGL ---Thanks so much for giving this bump to the Alabama Writers' Symposium this year! We expect it to be one of the very best yet! I encourage people to register early --- especially if you want to be seated at the lunch when Rick Bragg receives the Harper Lee Award.
Thanks again for the support,
