April 1st--and we prepare for our next park--Guadalupe Mountains!
We will be visiting this park the days of April 9th through 12th and are so looking forward to the hike to the top of the highest point in Texas!
Like so many of the other parks we have visited this park is attached to other adventures. We are attending the annual convention of the Texas Institute of Letters which will be held in El Paso Friday April 7th and Saturday 8th. Most of the events are open to the public. The TIL membership includes some of the most accomplished and prestigious writers in the state.
The hospitality of the city will be on full display. Most of the convention will be at the Doubletree downtown. The main banquet will be at Ardovino's Desert Crossing.
TIL and the El Paso Library and local bookstores have arranged readings by some of the attending authors during the week. Karla and I will be reading at the main library on Sunday April 9th at 3:30.
Our next reading is Tuesday April 11th at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park Amphitheater. That starts at 6:30 p.m.
Then, on April 12th, we are reading at the library of New Mexico State University Carlsbad. We are opening, and closing, their annual Jazz and Poetry Festival. That starts at 3 p.m.
If you are in the area please try to attend one of our readings! Or come to the park! We'd love to meet you and share more stories of poetic wonder!
