I respect and admire Barry Lynn, for reasons I’ve described recently here and here and (from back when he was in his mid-90s) here, so it was good to see him onstage last weekend as he marked his 100th birthday.
Included in the pleasures of quality acquaintances are the gifts they give (this from an erudite barkeep):
An interview with Dave Gourdoux. I was grateful that he raised the “persona” question. It’s been something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately.
Nice wrap-up of World Book Night, with photos: Al Roker, books, fire trucks…
The purpose of this post is to offer my heartfelt thanks to those of you (both givers and readers) participating in World Book Night. After the word went out and givers started signing up, I quickly realized I couldn’t manage to personally thank everyone in the manner they deserved, so I hope this post will go a little way toward doing that. Notes, photos (including the Beagle’s tattoo!), and a video after the break.
