I was honored to have been included in a lovely event this week:   Harvest of Ideas: A Celebration of Lehigh Authors reception hosted by the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries.

This was an annual recognition of Lehigh University faculty, including adjunct faculty, who have had works published and placed into the library collection. The event itself occurred in Linderman Library’s  Bayer Galleria, which is a room of stunning beauty. In the photograph, I am standing in front of a fireplace that was once a functional heating system. The wood paneling and bookshelves that fill the large space complete the extraordinary atmosphere of the room.

In addition to a wonderful spread of food and drink, the faculty books were put on prominent display on tables along the main wall of the room. I am honored to have my book on writing essays included.

I was also delighted that a jazz combo of Lehigh undergrad students performed during the event, and they were excellent! These young adults sounded like they had been performing jazz for many years. I closed my eyes, and I imagined an old, smoke filled room with such musicians playing!

It is always a wonderful feeling to receive recognition such as was given here, so I offer my thanks to the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries, the staff who prepared everything, and the wonderful librarians! Thanks to all!

  1. As a former university student who watched classmates unnecessarily struggle…Thank you for doing this book! Now that the STEM Wars are on, we are flushing the Arts right out of education almost entirely…forget that we needed to do MORE for Arts, now it is a struggle for survival. And there is just no good excuse for not teaching the basics of writing UNLESS we are hoping for a new generation of young people who cannot read the Constitution or communicate their ambitions enough to discuss when their dreams are being hijacked…and thereafter organize to fight for what they believe in. Reading is Knowledge. Writing is Freedom to exchange and debate ideas.
