Dear Professor Callander,
I heard that you and Professor Sandene are reading at the Spotted Cat in a few weeks. How exciting! I am hoping to attend both readings and am looking forward to seeing you both again.
Since graduating from Elwyn University last year, I’ve been working for the Weekly Courier as an arts and culture columnist. Mostly, I write reviews on art shows, concerts, and other cultural events around the city. I also write profiles and book reviews. I would like to ask whether may feature you and your book in my next column. The column will be published the day before your reading.
I was fascinated by your book, and it would be my pleasure to review it in the Weekly Courier: Are you available for a phone call tomorrow? Of course, 1 would prefer to interview you in person, but I’m out of town on assignment until next week. Please let me know if you are interested.
