At the State House

The 2010 Mass Cultural Council fellows were honored with a breakfast at the State House and citations from several very cheerful elected representatives, among them Smitty Pignatelli, Denise Provost, and my own state senator, the lovely and dedicated Sonia Chang-Diaz. It was great to meet other writers and experience, in the form of coffee, pastries and praise, Massachusetts’s commitment to the arts.
