March 17, 2006
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Kiss someone Irish, drink some tea (or green beer), and enjoy these links.
- Editor Cheryl Klein's "recommended reading" list notes children's books that new editors should know. (via Bartography)
- The venerable New York Times dips its toe into the blogging waters with The Pour, Eric Asimov's wine blog, and restaurant critic Frank Bruni's Diner's Journal. Welcome, fellows. The sites look great!
- The Guardian remembers the late science-fiction author Octavia Butler.
- Catch up with a September interview of the author of Heavy Words, Lightly Thrown on WNYC radio's Leonard Lopate Show. The book concerns the origins of nursery rhymes. Rawther naughty, they are.
- Nobel laureate J. M. Coetzee becomes an Australian citizen. Story at The Age.
- Consider trekking on the Hot Tamale Trail through the Mississippi Delta on April 22nd, courtesy of the Southern Foodways Alliance at Ole Miss.
- The Associated Press, via CNN, reports on what sounds like a lovely memorial service for the playwright Wendy Wasserstein.
- When you're tired o' reading, dance! Check out WFUV 90.7 FM at Fordham University and its Celtic Sounds pages (listed on the left on the station's home page). Great Irish music resources here.
Thanks for the good reading to go along with my Corned Beef & Cabbage tonight.
