First lesson this week: Duo author book readings are awesome. Thanks to Joseph Haeger for partnering with me at Auntie’s Bookstore in Spokane – how did they know our work would interrelate so beautifully? After Joseph read his new essay, it was as if the stars had lined up. The essay was a brilliant tie in to My Music Man. Memories. Loss. What we recover from them. How they morph.
Lesson two: Yes, it is a bit hard to figure out how to sign your books. I mean, beyond the signature. Friends are easy, but then what? Does it matter? While I admit to having taken to Google to prepare for my first signings, I realize in retrospect that I would have done better to just examine my own treasures. Those that I inherited from Dad….and he, from his dad.
Inscriptions – always meaningful. Then and now.
