Merril General Meeting and more

Last night was the Annual General Meeting for the Friends of the Merril, which went smoothly. I'm sticking around on the board for another year.

The biggest news was the local SF author Karl Schroeder is going to be TPLs Writer in Residence for the next six months, so if you want to have your work critiqued, the details are here.

Karl is a great SF author IMHO, and last night I found out that his Virga series is going to be turned into a webcomic by Blind Ferret. Details are still being worked out so it's a while off yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

My big sister also arrived in town last night for a few days of meetings, and Dave and I got together with her for dinner. She's an anaesthesiologist, and not only is she on the national board (which is why she's in town), she is also now in charge of the training program in her hospital. She's got an office AND her own secretary!
