Each summer a rotating group of scholars, writers, and illustrators gather to share our passions and talk shop. No pun intended, but here, everybody is on the same page - it's a complete treat to be surrounded by peers and colleagues who all share the same language and lexicon.
Sunday was all about setting up shop - classrooms, flats, paperwork, etc. So Monday was the first 'real' day. As such, we had to begin with an inaugural walk around campus.
There's a pack of us who go walking each morning at 6:30 to enjoy the day before it gets hot. Here are Karen Coats (scholar and author), Claudia Mills (scholar and author), and Candice Ransom (author of over 100 books).
