The hiatus between postings has been lengthened by a return to the USA, saying goodbye to the UK, along with the demands of book launch. In the interim, Diving for Pearls: A Thinking Journey with Hannah Arendt, has been published in print and eBook and can be ordered through your independent bookstore or online at Amazon or B&N.
Several readers have already sent me positive reviews and I hope to create a page about those responses soon.
In March, I will appear at Winthrop University in South Carolina to lecture on the book and lead a writing workshop in a feminist theory class. That same month, I will also meet with some high school students in the San Francisco Bay Area, and talk with them about their reactions to an excerpt from the book. I welcome your suggestions and invitations for other speaking opportunities.
Stay tuned for more news, including when my essay on Arendt will be scheduled to appear in Humanities Magazine, the publication of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
