| Maria Tatar ...|
I seem to recall some of you mentioning your proximity to New Hampshire ... you might be interested in this ... Maria Tatar will be presenting a lecture on "Storytelling and Survival: Bedtime Tales from Scheherazade to Peter Pan" on Thursday, November 15 at 8:00 p.m. on the Dartmouth campus. It sounds fascinating - perhaps I'll see you there?

I'm up in East Montpelier VT, an hour or so away. Alas and alack - this Thurs. is out of the question. Another time perhaps.
Would you post on the board anything wonderful you hear at the lecture?

Helen, let us know how it goes. I heard her speak on a Boston radio program about fairy tales some years ago, and she was brilliant.
I'm such a fan-girl when it comes to fairy tale academics... Marina
Warner renders me completely speechless.

Terri says: "Marina Warner renders me completely speechless." Me, too--and she was evidently at Smith College last year to give a lecture when I was home and NO ONE INFORMED ME. I should have been the first one they called for a dinner date! Bah! Humbug! Grrrr!

Jane, the only thing more intimidating than a brilliant fairy tale scholar is a brilliant fairy tale scholar who is also a brilliant fairy tale writer. I recall the days in my wayward youth when I was scared to talk to you too.... <g>

And now of course there are all those folk afraid to speak to YOU, Terri!
And for those who want to know what Terri and I look like (and Ellen Datlow, too) there is a simply awful picture of the three of us on my website!

I'm terrified of all of you - I just couldn't stand lurking any longer.
On the other hand, I terrify most of my daughters' friends, so it works all ways.
I'm gonna go look at that photo.

LOL! I'm terrified of the lot of you! And Terri, it's double whammy with you because you actually know BRIAN FROUD! *gasp*
Alas, no-one is terrified of me...at least not since I shaved off my mohawk. I guess I'm at the bottom of the pecking order.

Hah. I'm much less frightening than any of you.
(11/14/01 3:23:09 pm)
I too am in awe that I share words with all of you!
After I didn't have enough money to buy your CD, Jane, at Perspectives,
I felt awfully, awfully bold to have the guts to mention the board
with my autograph request slip! But now I'm glad I did have enough
guts, though I think I need them back to move on in my career (contract
ends 12/31, not renewed yet, AAAYYIIEE!!!). (I also informed Gail
Carson Levine, but never heard anything.)
And to have Terri on the other thread congratulate me... Terri Windling,
congratulating me... it definitely renders me speechless... or maybe
it renders me into a blabbering fool. Either way...
