Katrina Valenzuela  will be part of an author panel at Provincetown Library, Thursday, July 18, 6pm.

Judith Askew will have a poem, “Moon Landing, July, 1969” published in the summer issue of Ibbetson Street.  This year is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, an extraordinary event.  This poem has been revised and sent out and rejected a few times, and at last it’s found a home. I also have a poem, “Early Spring” in the on-line journal, The Courtship of Winds.

Hugh Blair-Smith gets many opportunities, in this Golden Year of Apollo, to flog his techno-memoir Left Brains for the Right Stuff. He made his pitch to the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston on March 14, and as a keynote address to the 2019 Integrated Communications Navigation & Surveillance Conference on April 9. The ATMoB pitch is at but you have to fast-forward by 18 minutes to get to it. As the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing approaches (July 20), there will be more of this “rocket scientist” stuff. Hugh also reports that he has just sold the sailboat he skippered for 43 years, and is thus retired from captaining.
