Hi Shawn--this is an informal way to go about it, but I figure, hey, this is how we 'know' each other anyway! I know that USF isn't hiring for a public service librarian position now, but I'm moving out next month & I wondered if I might get an informational interview once I'm settled in. I'd love to work for USF someday if the right position opens up, and I'll be living just down the street at Divisadero & McAllister! Feel free to switch to katetkacik at gmail if that works better. Thanks!
Hi Kate! Sorry for the delay responding - I’m in the heartland this week. Info meet up? ABSOLUTELY!!! I know its a bit early… but WELCOME to The City :)) Please shoot me an email calhouns at usfca dot edu when you get to town and have time. lunch on me here at USF in our faculty lounge. OK? Cheers!

“Here are white men poised to run big marijuana businesses, dreaming of cashing in big—big money, big businesses selling weed—after 40 years of impoverished black kids getting prison time for selling weed, and their families and futures destroyed. Now, white men are planning to get rich doing precisely the same thing?”
Some time ago, I tracked down a surviving copy of Ralph Steadman’s fairly obscure 1995 illustrations for George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Last week, I spent time scanning and restoring the images, then wrote about the edition with the appropriate background and context.
