I’m back! I had a great time at Wildacres Writing Workshop in Little Switzerland. As mark Twain says in Cottage Quotes, ” Keep away from those who belittle your ambitions…” I didn’t find a one of those at Wildacres. In a month or two I’ll post an interview with my instructor, novelist Carrie Brown. What an amazing woman and writer.
But for now . . .
Remember the big bank, Lehman Brothers, Goldman-Sachs tornado that blew everything financial to pieces a few years back? Charlotte Observer reporter, Rick Rothacker, was in the midst of that whirlwind. Rick’s recently published book, Banktown: The Rise and Struggles of Charlotte’s Big Banks, tells all about the build-up, punch and after-effects of the financial turmoil from inside the offices and board rooms of the decision-makers. After I read the prologue I thought, if the rest of the book is anything like this, it’s going to be an interesting ride. It was.
And it’s good to be home 😉
