1) Something you have been asking about:
The official walks start soon, hopefully next week–as soon as I can make it down to City Hall and procure me one or more gigantic, official maps upon which I can mark my progress. (Maps are fun.) And of course, I’ll be walking pretty much everywhere until then. As a matter of fact, I walked both to and from the liquor store just last night! (Yes on the North Side; no, not by myself, but with a well dressed white person and [gasp] we lived to tell the tale!)
2) Something you have not been asking about that I am going to tell you anyway:
The kids of the wonderful, wonderful local think-outside-the-box literary arts organization Studio StL will be reading and signing their new anthology, StudioSTL No. 1: self-portraits from the students of College Bound, at Left Bank Books in the CWE on Tuesday, November 6, at 7 p.m. Please consider stopping by, showing your support, and hearing pieces by some very fantastic, very young writers.
