Fully Lit

My current inspiration: Mary Karr. I'm almost done with her memoir, Lit, and plan to finish it this weekend - probably tonight. 80 pages left to the finish, I'm now eager to read her earlier books The Liars' Club and Cherry. What would be really amazing, though, would be to hear Ms. Karr speak about writing - specifically what words can do, the transformation of truth into reality and why poetry makes us feel the way we feel. I wonder if that's in my future...
