Oh, England, my lionheart...
I'll spend the first week at Worcester College at Oxford University guest lecturing to the Georgia Tech study abroad students on social media and literature. I'm staying with BFF's Karen and Colin in an old stone cottage just across from the campus. Although I've been to the UK a dozen times in the last 15 years, I've never visited Oxford, so I'll be playing tourist, too.
After Oxford, I'll be heading to Cardiff for a poetry reading with Karen, Ivy Alvarez and Mab Jones at The Promised Land, a pub in the city center. We're staying at The Big Sleep, a boutique hotel owned by John Malkovich. It would be a trip if he was there. The day we read is also the final match of the World Cup, so we'll be holed up in a pub watching with the masses.
Camera is already packed so expect lots of photos here and at Facebook. More soon!
