Littky revisited

After recently finding out about Dennis Littky I was not surprised to bump into him again in Horace's Hope by Theodore Sizer:
During 1983, while I was writing Horace's Compromise, I accepted a number of speaking engagements with school people to test my ideas and the directions in which they might lead me. At the conclusion of one such gathering in Massachusetts, I was confronted by a smiling, balding, red-bearded, plaid-shirt-wearing character who bluntly said, "You talk about it. We do it. You better get your butt up to my school."

He was Dennis Littky. I went to his school...
