Every year this happens: Fall comes too soon. Here in Maine of course, Fall is spectacular. But still, it means another summer has come to an end.

I have never gotten the calendar on this website to work properly so I have not been able to post the dates of speaking engagements (which, incidentally, are fewer each year as I get older..80!.. and find travelling a little more arduous) 

Nonetheless, here is what is coming up:

York County (Maine) Community College on October 7th.

Fort Myers, Florida (performances of THE GIVER at Florida Rep) Nov 5-6.

November 10th, 8 PM: Albany: "The Creative Life"  The Creative Life Series  Official description:
Created and produced by the New York State Writers Institute, University Art Museum, and UAlbany Performing Arts Center in collaboration with WAMC Northeast Public Radio, this series features leading figures from a variety of artistic disciplines in conversation with WAMC’s “Roundtable” host Joe Donahue about their creative inspiration, craft, and careers.  

Then to St. Louis for the NCTE convention in mid-November.

In October Howard and I will spend seventeen days in Portugal and Spain. So when summer ends it certainly doesn't mean that I go into hibernation and hole up for the winter. But oh, I will miss my gardens.

I've been talkling a lot to Sean Astin recently.  For some years he has been trying unsuccessfully to get the movie of "Number the Stars" made. It rmeinds me of the twenty...or maybe it was just 18?...years that Jeff Bridges tried to put together a film of THE GIVER.  Same with Sean; one dead end and disappointment after another.  But recently when he was speaking at a regional Comic Con convention and mentioned the Number the Stars project he got such a rousing response from the 1000-person audience that now he is investigating the possibiilty of some sort of crowdfunding that could make the movie possible.  If you go to his Facebook page (or mine in fact) you can see a video of him talking about it and his passion and itelligence will be quite clear.

In the meantime I have heard that the town of Gillileje, in Denmark...part of the book...is planning a museum commemorating the events of 1943 whihc are depicted in the book..

In these sad times when hatred has sadly become so pervasive, it seems appropriate to honor that moment in history when people rose up with integrity.  Go, Sean!

At six o'clock in the morning I will get up to go to school outside the open practice lectures, Authentic Kids Nike Shoes when others travel in the sleep, I also a person lying on the cold computer again and again to change their own ppt. Because Nike Free Run +3 I do not want to give up every opportunity to exercise their own. I want to succeed, so I have to work hard. People chasing the wind, young dreams, I believe that the opportunity to always leave someone ready. October 27, is an unforgettable day, that is my day of the game, but I failed, and the lowest points out, I am very sad, very disappointed, think of tomorrow's speech contest, I thought there is hope, So the dead of night, I sat in front of the cold computer, start over and over again to change ppt, see the speech, but the day is not with the people willing, October 28 afternoon, I failed, when the failure hit again, No one understands my inner pain and sorrow, I begin Air Veer GS Women to give up, I want to give it all up, because there is no reason to let me stick, I have a negative idea. Faced with the failure of the dark, no one can understand my pressure. When I was ready to escape all this time, she stood out and encouraged me once and again, and told me, 'You have the courage to stand on the stage and you are already successful.' This sentence touched my heart for a long time, over and over again filled my soul.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine.
