Happy Birthday (Eve), Audrey Bilger!
OK, so I’m kind of anticipating birthdays again here—but I wanted to give a quick birthday shout-out to Robert Frost’s Banjo’s own SoCal correspondent & more importantly, excellent friend, Audrey Bilger. Audrey’s frenetic schedule—complete with new admistrative job, book deals & her role on the Ms Magazine Blog—not to mention her usual run of publications (on everything from 18th century literature to comic strips) & activities, have reduced her role here—sad for us, blog-wise, but of course as a friend I’m thrilled by all the great happenings in Audrey’s life these days.
If you’re new to Robert Frost’s Banjo, I’d encourage you to search the label “Audrey’s Writing.” Some of Audrey’s posts, like her Lesley Gore interview or her examination of whether “Reformed Rakes” make good husbands have been among the blog’s most popular posts all-time—a day never passes that there aren’t “hits” on many of Audrey's posts.
But I also have some good news for the near future—you won’t be simply reduced to searching for Audrey’s writing amongst the blog archives, because she’ll be participating in the Writers Talk interview series next Thursday, October 7th. Mark your calendars & stay tuned, because I know that’s going to be an interview you don’t want to miss. Audrey is one of the wittiest, smartest & most articulate people I know.
& also a dear friend—so happy birthday, tomorrow, Audrey. Hope you have a great day, & many, many happy returns!
