>"The Writing of Fantasy": Susan Cooper and Gregory Maguire

>Last Friday Daryl Mark (of the Cambridge P.L.) and I went over to MIT to look over the new location that anticipatory enthusiasm for the evening seemed to demand. So, we’re still on for the program with Susan Cooper and Gregory Maguire, we’re still talking about the writing and reading of fantasy, and it’s still all going to take place on Wednesday, November 14, at 7:00PM. But note the new location: the program will now be taking place in the Frank Gehry glam Stata Center. MIT kahuna Paul Parravano (yes, consort to the inestimable Martha) showed us around, and it’s quite an impressive place. Tickets (free but limit of four) for the evening will be available October 15th by sending an SASE to: Susan Cooper Event, Cambridge Public Library, 359 Broadway, Cambridge, MA, 02139. Note: seating is first come, first served; overflow “population” (MIT-speak for audience) will be accommodated via TV monitors. A reception will follow.

The following evening Susan Cooper will deliver a lecture, “Unriddling the World: Fantasy and Children” for the Cambridge Forum. This event is also free, no ticket required, and will be held at 7:30 PM at the First Parish church in Harvard Square, Cambridge.

    >So wait, should you send an SASE *by* October 15th, or *starting* October 15th?

    I really don’t want to miss this, so I want to be extra exact.

  2. >Will there be a transcript/podcast/text of your interview and the speech available for non-Bostonians? It sounds so tempting, yet is so out of reach.
    IF

    >You can write for tickets now; Cooper’s speech will be broadcast by various NPR stations and will then be available on the Cambridge Forum site. I’m not sure how the interview will be made available but it is definitely being recorded and will be broadcast/podcast in some form. I’ll keep you posted.

  4. >Paul P as “consort.” Funny. Funny.
    I know, from breathlessly chasing him down a hill to catch a bus, that Paul walks behind NO ONE. Though, if anyone is a queen of the world, it’s Martha.

    Gosh I hope there is a podcast. It’s awful to live so far away.

  5. >did anyone else see G.Maguire’s self-celebratory “editorial” in yesterday’s Boston Globe? My, how prescient he was!

    广州翻译公司今年广交会不允许外商自带翻译入场,但还是有很多翻译公司|已有生意合作意向的外商,在全国翻译公司中找外语导游当翻译,进行“场外商贸洽谈”。
    同声传译现在上海翻译公司英语、日语、法语等语种导游储备充足,深圳翻译公司|也是随着参加广交会的巴西、西班牙等西班牙语系以及阿拉伯语国家的客商提供深圳翻译大幅增多,使小语种导游产生巨大缺口,其中来自巴西的外商比去年多了一倍翻译公司
