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.
