Anne Valente came to Wright State for a reading this past Wednesday, and by god, she was as charming as her fiction. I love it when I like writers as much as I like their writing. She was gracious with her time, attentive to students and their questions, and read with authority and grace.
She lives in Cincinnati and I hope we keep in touch. What a treat to keep meeting such awesome local authors.
Huge thanks to Jane Blakelock for the wonderful pics!
