I didn’t accomplish much in the way of reading today, but I did make progress on the plans for the Welty Birthday celebration at JCJC on April 13.  We’ll have programs starting at 9:30 and going to 12:20 in the Home Health Auditorium.

Right now, the program looks like this:

9:30      Conversations About Eudora Welty  (Beverly Fatherree and Sharon Gerald)

10:30    Mississippi Photographers and Welty with the WPA  (Mark Brown)

11:30    Southern Humor and Welty’s Fiction  (Tammy Townsend and Marcia Adkins)

Everyone is welcome to treat themselves to lunch afterward in the school cafeteria.  We’ll have coffee, cake, and a book discussion on Welty’s Collected Stories at 1:30 in the faculty dining hall.

Bring yourself.  Bring your students.  Enjoy!
