A Night of Mentors, Muses, Teachers & Students

Mentors, Muses and Monsters visited Upstate New York on Wednesday, February 3. Contributors Robert Boyers and Alexander Chee joined me at East Line Books in Clifton Park, NY, about halfway between Albany and Saratoga Springs, for a reading and discussion. The audience was full of our students - from Skidmore, where Robert teaches, Amherst, where Alex teachers, and the Albany area, where I taught several years ago at the NY State Writers Institute at SUNY-Albany. In fact, Robyn Ringler, owner of the store, was in that class. Thanks to Robyn for the invitation and to everyone who braved the cold to come see us.

  1. It was a wonderful reading and discussion. I'm glad I could be there. And it's fitting that the editor of a book about mentors has inspired such a large following of appreciative students, this one included.
