The Lammys were most exciting. Many of my beloveds traveled from Western MA to be there, including Susan Stinson, Terry Vecchio, and Leslea Newman. We got to hang out with writers we usually only see at conferences. Lots of glitz and glamour. And, although the show was a tad long, many of the acceptance speeches were very moving. Kate Clinton was, as always, funny and timely and right on key. It was lovely to witness the love-fest between Armistead Maupin and Olivia Dukakis. Kate Millet, a bona fide mother of free thought remains a tenacious force.
Walked the Highline, went to the 9/11 Memorial. Ate a great meal at the over-priced American Grill on (I think) 44th St. Hint – get a starter – more than enough and half price. I had the hummus because the menu said “Best hummus you will ever eat” and it was.
OK back to writing about old ladies in love and young confuse Puerto Rican boys.
