An Attempt at History

Here’s some exciting news I’ve been sitting on for a few weeks… this week, a middle school in Chaska, Minnesota, will attempt to set a Guinness Book record for the longest reading relay. The school will read Mudville for four consecutive hours, relaying sentence by sentence, with around 800 total participants. I will be there to read the first sentence.

Here’s more about the record attempt from Chaska’s local paper.

I am flattered that Chaska picked Mudville of the many books available and gives me a chance at this unique honor. I will, of course, report back with photos after the event. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go practice my line.

My father says the defining moment of his life came when he was twelve years old.
