October 27, 2011 • Miami U visit

Dave and I just got back from the second leg of his book tour. This time we hit Dayton, Oxford, and Cincinati, Ohio. Because we both earned our Master's degrees in creative writing from Miami of Ohio, we were invited to visit classes and give a reading there in Peabody Hall. Miami's campus is always beautiful, and since it was fall and the leaves were changing, it was as inspiring as ever. We visited the buildings where we studied as well as the ones where we taught our first college classes, and I honestly felt awed by how far we'd come in the past thirteen years. Thanks to Eric Goodman and everyone at Miami for having us there. It was a wonderful experience.
