The July 8 book signing at Buffalo Street Books was a fun event! Thanks to Robyn for helping set up the LCD projector, to Nickie and Lisa for setting up the refreshments, to Sue Perlgut for introducing me, and to Gary Weisbrot for running an independent book store where we can have these events. And THANKS to all of you for showing up–Standing Room Only–to my surprise and delight. Thanks for your interest, support, questions, suggestions. Thanks for buying the book.
This is all new to me–creating a book, exploring internet publishing, having a reading, signing books. Something about turning 60 this spring–gives me the impetus to get out there and do what I want to do.
Next step is to start sending the books to members of Congress (thanks, Mary, for subsidizing the postage!) on the relevant committees, i.e. Health Care Reform, Finance, etc. That will be a new experience, as well. Wouldn’t it be great if this project actually had an effect on health care reform? Public health care, anyone?
I’m planning on having another reading in August–will try to pick a different evening, for those of you who were working/working late this time. Will let you know. Meanwhile, Spinal Diary is at the Art Barn at Grassroots this weekend–stop by and check it out!
