The Loaf

One of the great things about being here on the Bread Loaf campus is that cell phones don’t work, and there are only a few computers to check email, so I have been blissfully out of touch with world news until this morning. My first day here was made of reunions with friends, like Mary Akers, Cliff Garstang, Katrina Denza, Nina McConigley, Paul Yoon, and many others, and also enjoying some very Loaf-y experiences, like drinks at Treman before dinner and green tea at the barn after the evening reading. Last night was the official start of the conference, with a welcome talk by Michael Collier, and readings by the amazing Percival Everett and Linda Gregerson.
