SPARK: Words and Pictures, at the Met

Hey, all. I haven't been 'on' for quite a while. So why now? Because when NPR's Julie Burstein asked me if I have a Facebook or Twitter account and when I said "No," she laughed, slapped her knee, rolled on the floor, then asked, "Well, how will people know you're going to be here?"

"Here" in this case is at the Met in NYC, for Julie's SPARK! series. I will be interviewed by Julie along with Met curator Melanie Holcomb. The topic: "Words and Pictures."

The time, date and place: 6PM THURS, MAY 21, The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I hope if you're in the city or nearby you'll come along. For more info tickets you can call the Met.

Hope to see you there!
