IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE IN SAVANNAH TONIGHT... On Friday, May 19, 6:30-8:30 pm, nationally recognized creative writers Collin Kelley and Heather Macadam will feature for a special reading/open mic event organized and hosted by Mary Chi-Whi Kim. The posh yet cozy Cafe Ambrosia located at 202 E. Broughton has appeared on FoodNetwork for its gourmet fare, a perfect venue for the writers' extraordinary craft and performance style.

Pushcart Prize-nominated poet, Collin Kelley's new chapbook, Slow To Burn, has just been released from MetroMania Press. His debut collection, Better To Travel, was nominated for the Kate Tufts Discovery Award, Georgia Author of the Year Award and Lambda Literary Award. His poetry has appeared in magazines and journals both in the US and UK.

Heather Dune Macadam is the author of two books: Rena's Promise: A Story of Sisters in Auschwitz, which was nominated for the National Book Award, and The Weeping Buddha, which was a finalist in the Lambda and Nero Wolf Awards. She has been published in Observer, Women in the UK, The New York Times, The Advocate and Newsweek and is a semi-regular commentator on NPR's "All Things Considered." She teaches nonfiction writing at a local university.

Sounds very exciting. It won't be too long before you're in Charlotte, right?

I'll be Charlotte in the fall. That's the plan anyway. Don't have a set date yet...I would guess late September or October. :)
