RO: Yes, as Bette Midler - and before her Buzzy Linhart - said you gotta have friends. Right now I'm in North Carolina with some of mine for a tour we're calling Unarmed But Dangerous. I don't remember how it came to be but we are in the hands of the amazing Molly Weston and Elaine Viets, Meredith Cole, Donna Andrews and I will be in the triangle area from June 5-8 visiting libraries, bookstores and a landmark Cultural Center, if you're in the area please check any of our websites (mine is www.rosemaryharris.com) for dates and locations.
In the past three years I've toured (mostly unofficially) with Jane Cleland, Meredith Cole, Cathy Pickens and I've shared the stage with Barb D'Amato, Liz Zelvin, Louise Penny, Julie Kramer, Wendy Corsi Staub and our own Jan Brogan. It's always fun. At the risk of getting all mushy...there is a sisterly quality to most of these events. No, we're not setting each others hair, but there is a camaraderie and a generosity of spirit that is one of the things I enjoy about what I'm doing.
And it's fun. Molly told a story tonight about the time 5 writers were staying with her and one of them found a snake on the premises. What they did sounded a little like the lobster scene in Annie Hall.
Roberta, you had mentioned in the past a fun trip you took with Libby Hellman. Anyone else have fun group stories from the road?
