Delia Sherman & I are doing a holiday "house concert/lecture" - just think of it as coming and hanging out with us in a living room on the Upper West side, while we shoot the breeze about the way that fantasy literature and traditional folk music play nicely together and make beautiful children.  Come with your own examples of books and stories that do the trick, or get ready to hear us talk - and sing! - about Ellen's World Fantasy Award-winning novel THOMAS THE RHYMER (based on a Scots Border Ballad), and Delia's multiple short stories, like "The Maid on the Shore," plus, of course, her novel THROUGH A BRAZEN MIRROR (from Martin Carthy's rendition of the ballad "The Famous Flower of Serving-Men) . . . and how Ellen stole - er, recycled one of its plotlines.
And, yes, there will be singing.
To find out the Secret Location, call Heather at (212) 957-8386 for reservations and information.
General admission: $15. Folk Music Society of NY members or full-time students: $12.

(This is just to say

I have taken
the link
that was on
your entry

and which
you mightn't have
intended
for inspiration
as an invitation
to find a folk music society
in my local area.

Thank you:
it looks welcoming
so loud
and so harmonious.)

More power to you! And may the spirit of William Carlos Williams always be strong in you.

Oh, to be in New York instead of Cleveland, where I will no doubt be snowed-in -- or at work. It sounds lovely and wonderful to be with a variety of such talented people.
