Delighted to hear my short story, “The iPad Wars,” read aloud in full by a colleague at the unveiling of the annual issue of The Citadel. After a recent hiatus, our venerable literary journal is back! Published at LACC for more than 50 years, The Citadel features juried fiction and poetry by the writers from LACC, as well as from the surrounding areas (Hollywood, Silverlake, Echo Park). The theme for this issue is what the future holds, and I thought that my story of a father fighting his pre-teen’s conquest of the Internet would illustrate it pretty well – another crossover of parenting experience into memoiristic writing. I am very pleased with its inclusion in the issue.
The kick-off ceremony took place Nov. 14 in front of about 100 students and faculty in the campus Quad. Very festive!
Please contact me directly for the copies of the short story.
