UT Press at 75

Congratulations to my friends at the University of Tennessee Press. They are celebrating their 75th Anniversary. In the past seven-and-a-half decades UT has published hundreds of books. Their fall catalog reflects that rich history with a collage of 39 covers.

To celebrate, last Friday evening they held a reception at Cheaspeake's downtown. Dean of Libraries, Steve Smith and I were invited to speak. Smith talked about the importance of books and published and I was asked to say a few words about my work-in-progress: Ephemeral by Nature.

Asking an author to talk about one of his books is like asking my late father to watch football. There's never a problem.

Thank you, Scot and the rest of the staff.
