morris-tinyWednesday, May 1, 2013, 12:31 p.m. I got an email from Envoy reporter Sophie Simon who wanted to interview me about the call I put out for a boycott of the Aronson Awards. She was fed, according to her email, bogus information (of course) which she accepted as gospel (of course).

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

The PEN May 2, Event, The PEN Cabaret, featuring Laurie Anderson, Carrie Brownstein, Horacio Castellanos Moya, Patricia Clarckson, Steve Connell, David Conrad, Mark Z. Danielewski, James Franco, Peter Hirsch, Nick Laird, Walter Mosley, Parker Posey, Lou Reed, Sekou and Sean Wilsey, sold out weeks ago. But WORD writer Hannah Levine, who works for the Hunter Envoy as its Entertainment Editor and who blogs at  My Soul Is a Butterfly, had been for several weeks feverishly hoping as well as feverishly persisting to get access even though we guessed the odds were a 1,000 to one.

I got this email from her last night: “I am ecstatically happy.”
