Lost Lexington Coming to the University of Kentucky

In April 2015, I was honored to receive the Excellence in Writing Award from the University of Kentucky's Department of Writing, Rhetoric and Digital Design. It is always rewarding to be honored by your alma mater, but it is unique when it is for something so distant from your academic career (my UK degrees are in accounting and law).

The accolade arose from my creation of this website and the publication of Lost Lexington. Later this month, I'm returning to campus for what I'm told is the inaugural event in the Robert E. Hemenway Writing Center Speaker Series. There, I'll be speaking about writing the Kaintuckeean and Lost Lexington and I'll be sharing a few of the backstories from Lost Lexington.

I want to thank the Writing Center, the WRD Department and especially Professor Judi Prats (who incidentally taught me a 100-level English class when I was a UK undergraduate) for hosting this event.

And, since the event is open to the public -- I hope you'll join the festivities!
