Literature and Sex in Arkansas

Laura Parker Castoro was one of dozens of Arkansas writers and celebrities who participated in the 2009 Arkansas Literary Festival in Little Rock April 16-19.

Here’s a memento of her contribution to the festivities, a workshop titled “A Little More Sex.”

†”Here are a few pictures from the workshop I gave at the 2009 Arkansas Literary Festival workshop.†My husband laughed when he saw them.† He has always said Iím a very animated speaker.† The pictures do not lie.† Facial expressions are one thing.† But it turned out to be very difficult to get a picture in which at least one of my hands wasnít blurred.† Reminded me of that line about shutting someone up by tying their hands.† I guess I may qualify!†We had a good time.† It isnít every day you get to spend an hour in front of 37 strangers talking about ††C-O-P-U-L-A-T-I-O-N.† Maybe the hand gestures were an attempt to distract from the subject.† Who me???”†

You can find out what else the irrepressible Laura Castoro is getting up to at her†website.†
