Every person in these pictures made time in their day to come out to Third Place Books in Ravenna and listen to me yap. Visiting Tom tour rolls on (tonight, Powells in Portland). Thank you.
A heartfelt silent thank you to the stranger I just overheard recommending my book titles to another person in a coffee shop far from home. He went 3 for 4. However: I cannot take credit for “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.”
After roughly 3,500 Midwestern miles, tomorrow morning the Visiting Tom book tour heads for the West Coast. So grateful for everyone who has shared a kind word, a handshake, a story, a moment, and above all their time and attention over the past several weeks. Thank you.
Always good to accidentally run into the person hosting your event so she has the opportunity to remind you that your performance is at 4 p.m. this afternoon, NOT 7 p.m. like you were thinking. This saves you from taking a nap in the hotel room while everyone stares at the empty podium. See you…View post
Thank you to the folks at Nicola’s Books for posting this set of photos from my event there. We had fun–as you can see (although my favorite is the first photo of the second row, in which it appears I’ve just received bad news from the septic system repairman).
