My personal memoir, "Memoirs in Gogyohka: A Collection of Short Poems and Memoirs," has also been selected by Indie Minnesota to be given given a place in the library space on its BiblioBoard Library mobile and web platform. And considering that quite a few of the (diary) entries were written during my coming of age in the state of Minnesota during the mid-to-late 1980s, this is a big deal. :)

Thank you again, team Indie Minnesota. My life-long love of libraries is undying, and to have my literary works included in them means the world to me.

Oh, you betcha it does. :)

The fourth effort to be published from the Cat Ellington Literary Collection, "More Imaginative Than Ordinary Speech: The Poetry of Cat Ellington" (hey, that's me), has been selected by Indie Minnesota to be moved into the library space on its BiblioBoard Library mobile and web platform. And I am overjoyed because of it. I'm so glad that countless readers in the Land of 10,000 Lakes will be able to read the book at their own leisure.

Thank you, Indie Minnesota, for making me feel at home! I appreciate all of you. :)

It was truly an honor to learn that "The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style," which I co-authored along with filmmaker Joseph Strickland and fellow writer B.J. Patterson, has moved into the library space on the BiblioBoard Library mobile and web platform. And it is indeed a great blessing.

Thank you, Indie Minnesota! We're so proud to be members of your library family. Hi, Cara! ;)

My dearest men and women, it genuinely pleases me to announce that my personal memoir, "Memoirs in Gogyohka," was recently selected by Califon Productions, Inc., the producer of Wheel of Fortune (affectionately dubbed America's Game), to be a puzzle solution in its "Title" category. And I am bowled over with honor as a result of it.

We didn't even know it went in, my assistant just found out about it a few days ago. But after receiving confirmation that the work was indeed selected in the aforementioned category, I couldn't help but be overjoyed: for I love the Wheel of Fortune (I always have and I always will), and I consider this to be a great blessing. Thank you, Califon Productions.

Yes, I'm still in shock.


Lovingly,

Cat Ellington 💋
