Yee Haw!

This spring is going to be an exciting one. My new novel, THE VACATIONERS, will be out in June, and there are sure to be lots and lots and lots of really fun events surrounding the book's publication. Before that happens, though, my husband, baby and I will be practicing our boot-scootin' boogies down in Nashville.

That's right! This spring, I'll be teaching a workshop at the venerable Vanderbilt University. My beloved friend and mentor Lorrie Moore starts teaching there in the spring after two and a half decades in Madison, Wisconsin, and I feel very lucky that she thought of me when this gig came up. Please tell me where the good brownies are. And the fried chicken. And the babysitters. We'll be in Nashville from the beginning of January to the end of April, and the whole thing sounds like a great adventure. If the baby could talk, he'd say, y'all, I can't wait. Connie Britton and Ann Patchett, look out! We're about to be best friends.

love and grits,

Emma
