Watch for falling books

Okay, probably not what they meant by Fall for the Book but how do you pun about a pun? This Wednesday kicks off the eight day event at noon and follows it up with a smorgasbord of events.

You can’t start a festival on a campus without drumming poets of course (no official word on clove cigarettes but I’m putting my bet down on yes) but the rest of the day runs the gamut from “Poetry On Demand booth – original verses in a matter of minutes” to reduced Shakespeare to an evening book tour appearance from Deborah Tannen explaning why yet another two groups of people don’t understand a damned thing each other is saying.

It looks like an interesting assortment of events, look and see if something else calls out to you.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
