Nothing to report during the month of September. I've been working on revising my manuscript and applying for funding to support the project. I did recently buy a new desk (see picture), met with friends to discuss projects, read a chapter for a friend from her book manuscript, and ordered Regina Andrews' passport information from the State Department--$60!. I ordered an oral history of Regina's former co-worker, Pura Belpre White (the first Puerto Rican librarian at the New York Public Library) from Columbia University's Oral History Research Office but didn't find anything related to Regina in her oral history. They did remain lifelong friends. This week I head to Cincinnati, Ohio to attend a conference. I hope to visit Regina's alma mater Wilberforce if time permits.
