January 1, 1970March 8, 2007 I'll give the address for the American Association of University Women for the "International Women's Day" Celebration. WOMEN IN AMERICA, WOMEN IN TURKEY, WOMEN IN GENERAL: ENVIRONMENTS THAT KEEP US IN THE SAME BOAT.
March 24, 2007 (all day Saturday workshop). I'll be teaching a hands-on MEMOIR writing class for the Blue Ridge Pen.
January 20-29: I get to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah because my traveling friend, Jerlene Jones, has a son (Keith Lewis) who is producter of a documentary that made it into Sundance and is up for two awards-and they invited me. Couldn't miss it!
My daughter, Karen, who was the layout-design person for my first children's book, is working with me on the writing of my second book in the series of Turkish-American kids who discover their roots. This time, it's an eighth-grade cheerleader who has to write a first research paper about ancestors and discovers in the process about her heritage.
