Lulu, recuperating from trauma of haircut. This is the chair I used to sit in to mark up my manuscript (still loathe editing myself on a monitor), but Lu’s taken it over.

Enough with the sweaters. This Father’s Day I gave my guy an early gift—tix to Lorraine Hansberry’s final play. She was a genius. The incandescent performances by Oscar Isaac and Rachel Brosnahan honor her memory.

Fantastic time at the @poetswritersinc annual gala. I’m with the Long Island contingent, my pal (and super writer) @nelsondeMille and actor and memoirist @Susan_Lucci. And the program! @levarburton was the most brilliant MC ever.

Sooo excited!
