Bull City by Stuart Albright

This is a shout-out to one of my English teachers back in the Dirty D, representing Durham and Jordan High well, Mr. (Stuart) Albright.

Check out his book Bull City here:

Mr. Albright is one of my real-life, inspirations.  His first book, Blessed Returns about his time teaching in inner Camden, the poorest city in America is a story I frequently think about as I discover more about what makes poverty real in American cities.

Finally, check out Unlocking Room 413, Mr. Albright's first class project of collected short stories from his first creative writing class which I was a part of.  My addition "Wishing for Joshua" (which I later named "11:11") is part of the collection and I guess is the first time I've been published in book print.

Here's to you Mr. Albright!


  1. Thanks for the shout out, Matt. Hope all is well with you. I can't believe you are already done with college. I'm getting old!

  2. Congratulations on being published in print! That's awesome, and I am sure it won't be the last time!
