NC blogging and bloggable events

The 83rd edition of the Tar Heel Tavern, the blog carnival of NC blogging, is up on Poetic Acceptance.

Shortly before I moved here to Seed, Erin took over the management of the carnival and did a great job updating and beautifying the homepage and the archives.

Although I have hosted Tar Heel Tavern five times before, I have not done so since I quit managing it. So, to make up for the lost time, I will be hosting next week, on October 1st, right here. Send your entries by midnight Eastern Time on Saturday at: Coturnix1 AT aol DOT com.

Then, on October 14th, I hope to see a lot of you in Greensboro, at ConvergeSouth an Unconference Beyond Blogging.

Although, like the White House, we made the big announcement of the Triangle Science Blogging Conference on Friday night, it is not true that nobody is paying attention - a number of people have expressed interest already and a few have already registered. So, are you coming?

Next Chapel Hill-Carrboro blogger meetup will be on Thursday, October 5th. Unfortunately, it appears I will not be able to make it this time.

Kevin is back from China. He is nursing jet-lag, reconnecting with his family, and avoding Chinese food, as well as trying to use what remains of nice weather to do some herping in the Sandhills. We'll meet soon for sure and I'll let you know if he decides to start his own blog.

My daughter's birthday was a few days ago. She got a nice new digital camera, so you'll be seeing some more good cat pictures here in the near future.

There are also several notable book-related events in the area next month:

If you liked "Cold Mountain" you may like Chuck Frazier's new book as well:

The long-awaited second novel, THIRTEEN MOONS, from Charles Frazier, winner of the National Book Award for Cold Mountain will have its national debut on October 3 at Jones Auditorium on the campus of Meredith College. Tickets are $6 each, or 1 free with the purchase of THIRTEEN MOONS.

Elizabeth Edwards will read from and sign her new book SAVING GRACES: FINDING SOLACE AND STRENGTH FROM FRIENDS AND STRANGERS on Monday, October 9, 2006 at 7:30 PM at Quail Ridge Books & Music in Raleigh.
