Why is this Woman Smiling?


Why is this woman smiling?
  • Did she win the lottery for $1 Billion?
  • Is she going to marry the richest man in the world?
  • Did she win no Nobel Prize for Literature?
She is going to a Bob Dylan concert in Memphis.  She is Erin Callahan, a Professor of English at San Jacinto College in Houston.  She actually traveled from Houston to Memphis to see the concert.  Her doctoral dissertation from Drew University was titled I Am America Signing: Bob Dylan's Identity Unified through Linguistic Performance.

I met Erin at the Bob Dylan conference in Tulsa in 2019.  She regularly attends the monthly Bob Dylan online chats on Google Meets.
