20 Getting Started Monday, January 23 This morning I spoke on the phone with James Peltz, the interim director of SUNY Press. He told me that Dying to Teach will appear in both cloth and paperback editions and that I can include up to 20 photographs of Barbara and our family. I’m elated, for this will be my most important book. I’m sad it’s finished—it was easier writing about her every day than not writing about her. Nevertheless, I’m delighted that others will soon be able to read about Barbara and her impact on her family and friends.
