20 Mar

We’ve got a great bunch of pieces for “Luck” tomorrow night!

– Kat Iacobucci muses on HBO

– Dick Ridington reads from his memoir, “Full Fathom”

Luck o’ the Writers

11 Mar

Yesterday was Hartford’s St. Patrick’s Day parade (joyfully outlined here by Syllable attendee Real Hartford). Though I’m not quite sure why the parade was a full week before the holiday, I hope that the folks who attended felt the luck o’ the revelers all morning.

Anyone want to share their ideas for this month’s reading? Hopefully you know by now that the theme is, indeed, luck. And hopefully you feel lucky enough about something to write about it! If not, there’s always fiction…

A friend of ours loves this song, so we’ll leave you with it.

We too feel lucky to have been where we have been.
