Over at the Happy Booker... (and I don't mean the adult bookstore on the highway outside of Alamogordo...)

Writes Wendi Kaufman in her blog, The Happy Booker: "Often overshadowed by politics and powerbrokers, I am happy to report the literary scene is very much alive and kicking here in D.C." Her post is about Richard Peabody's fab-fab-fab anthology Enhanced Gravity: More Fiction by Washington Area Women, which includes her superb short story, "Adulterer's Delight." Wendi's fiction has also appeared in The New Yorker, Other Voices, and elsewhere, and she frequently writes for the Washington Post. Last month, she published a lengthy and much-talked about article on the DC Literary Scene in the The Washingtonian. Speaking of the DC literary scene, it would be sad indeed without the (just over the Maryland border) Bethesda Writers Center. I'm offering a special one day literary travel writing workshop there next Sunday. More anon.
