What’s So Medieval About Texas?

I was very happy to do a reading and signing of my new book, Grendel’s Mother: The Saga of the Wyrd-Wife, at the annual Texas Medieval Association Conference,TEMA Logo2 (1)held for the first time at Texas State University. My amazing colleague, Yasmine Beale-Rivaya, was tireless in organizing the event, along with many others.

My reading was especially meaningful because I got to share my novel with fellow medievalists and Anglo-Saxonists.

I appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and support. I was especially touched to be introduced by my dauntless college, Rob Tally. Thanks, Rob!

I am always happy to see graduate students present papers. Sometimes they are doing so for the first time. I’m so proud of them.

Congratulations to all these great students!

We couldn’t have had the conference without the dauntless work of volunteers.

It was fun with colleagues from Texas State and around the world.

I’m so glad we could welcome you to our lovely campus and look forward to seeing you back here in 2019!

Thanks to Deanna and Whitney for taking some of these photos!
