Oh hey, I was on NPR Illinois today.

Wild to have grown up listening to NPR, and then today I got to turn on the radio and hear my voice right after NPR News from Washington!!

It was a pleasure to join Community Voices, a show produced by NPR Illinois WUIS 91.9FM out of Springfield, to talk about the work I do for the Kirkland Fine Arts Center, the College of Fine Arts at Millikin University, my upcoming book (STILL ALIVE, Feb 2024) from Malarkey Books, and how much I love living in Decatur. I even wedged in a mention of Frank’s, purveyors of the best Italian Beef in Central Illinois.

You can listen to the whole conversation right here.


At least not the Shakespeare we thought: 

“Oxford University Press has announced that its new edition of the complete works of William Shakespeare will credit Christopher Marlowe as a co-author on the three Henry VI plays.” Read more here and here

If you want to learn more about Shakespeare *cough* Christopher Marlowe *cough* (CAN YOU TELL I HAVE AN OPINION?), this documentary is an excellent introduction. Late edit: STREAMING HERE.

Carry on with your regularly scheduled programming.
