No kidding! Saw Childress at the Calvin Festival of Faith and Writing and liked her hugely. Wonderful to have her nearby.

For some reason, I had always read "Grand Rapids" instead of "Grand Haven." My Dad grew up in South Haven.

Kelli and Andrew:

1. Kelli, I wish you could be here, too. Todd is a great guy and a terrific poet. Susan's book is wonderful. I haven't heard her read yet,which is one of the reasons I set up this reading. I am really looking forward to this event.

2. Andrew--yes, I am in Grand Haven (where the Grand River flows into Lake Michigan), about thirty miles west of Grand Rapids. South Haven is about 40 miles or-so south.

All the best,
