James D. Houston

Long-time Squaw Valley faculty member James D. Houston has passed on. I never had a workshop with him, but I remember his 2007 follies performance with Al Young--the two of them known as the Granite Chief Quartet. Check out Lisa Alvarez's blog for a photo of the performance.

People always talk about role models for kids. As a young California writer, I am always looking for my own role models. Houston's quiet, thoughtful life is one to look to. Farewell.
