This and That

Tonight I'll be offering a lecture ("'I Take My Life in My Hand': A Tale of Two Cherokees and the Trail of Tears") at the meeting of the Catawba County Executives' Club, and then tomorrow I'm off to Oklahoma for the induction into the Broken Arrow Great Graduates Hall of Fame. I'll be catching up with everyone as soon as I'm back home!

I had a lovely time at Harry PotterFest 2012. I was very pleased by the attendance and reaction at my talk. Danielle Tumminio was fantastic, as were Hawthorn and Holly. It was great to spend some time with gods_lil_rocker and others at the "Insufferable Know-It-Alls" trivia contest, too!

On another note, I just got the happy word that I'll be presenting my paper "'Crowded in My Sky': Frontier Narratives and Freedom in Firefly and Serenity" at Joss in June: A Conference on the Works of Joss Whedon. I'm looking forward to it! FYI, the Call for Papers is still open, if you're interested in submitting a proposal. It should be great fun.

I'll leave you with a photo. My niece Kaitlyn was Tigger for her very first Halloween. :)
