I wish all of you a peaceful, healthy and happy new year. I wish for a lot of activity on ReadLiterature and TalkLiterature.
Sterling, thank you for letting me know about the spams. I deleted them.
As those of you who are on Facebook know, I have been in India for the past 3 months and I just returned home (it's cold here but it is great to be home). I saw and learned awesome stuff. I read a lot of Indian literature. I gave a mini course titled Graphic Novel in Global Context. It was a big hit.
