Strauss Theatre: Young Troupe Goes Hollywood!

Last night, I was the featured speaker at the Sons of Confederate Veterans camp in Eldorado, Arkansas. I spoke on my children’s book and my future plans. Everywhere I go, folks are moved by the story of Jim Limber. I’ve only found a few who are embarrassed by the story—that would be the Southerners who are determined to be politically correct at any cost. I guess when you’ve been trained to eat crow, truth doesn’t taste good.
My main salesman contact at Pelican is on vacation this week, so that has put my Louisiana travel plans in limbo, as I can’t set up signings etc. without him.  Today, I must finish an editing job, or I’ll be really behind schedule! Tomorrow, I have grandfather duty in the morning. Thursday, a signing at the Snyder Museum in Bastrop.
Coming Up: Yesterday, I attended a teacher’s meeting for a couple of hours. I’ll be part of the Strauss Theatre’s summer workshops–the featured artists the week of June 25-29. Long days, lots of work, but so much fun. I’ll have a couple of really sharp theatre interns working with me too. The theme is going Hollywood, and my week is focussed on “Survivor.” If you have a child age 5-13, you should enroll him/her in this program. Last year, over 200 children participated. Call the theatre at 318-323-0474 for more information.
