West End United Methodist Church / Nashville TN
Friday & Saturday, January 21-22, 2011
West End is one of my spiritual birthplaces. I am honored they asked me to be the first artist to speak at a new series, a series that connects the work of writers with the issues of spirituality. I will be their guest for a dinner on Friday evening and read a bit from new work and be interviewed by Michael Williams, the senior minister, a noted storyteller and writer in his own right. On Saturday, I will conduct a workshop in the morning — The Daily in the Daily & The Divine in the Daily. The events are separate, one can attend either the dinner or the workshop or both.
I asked specifically if my non-West End friends could come, and they assured me that you are welcome. In fact, they have stories to tell you.

Grace Episcopal Church/Cullman, Alabama
Lenten Wednesdays Lecture Series
Wednesday, March 16, 23, 30 and April 6, 13, 2011
This past August, one of my good friends — Dale the Clem, Himself — invited me to spend a week with him and with some of his friends, in a retreat setting where we talked about writing and such. One of his friends, — and one of my friends now — is an Episcopal priest named Bob Blackwell. Bob has asked me to come and be with him and his parish for a Lenten series. I will be in Cullman each Wednesday during this coming Lent for supper and a reading. He assures me that any of my Alabama friends, all of them even, can join in any or all of the Wednesdays. I assure you that I will be disappointed if you do not.
To do so, contact The Rev. Bob Blackwell — www.gracecullman.org or 256.734.6212.
