good old Vonnegut once suggested we do - described here, if you're interested.)
Two of the very nicest things that have ever happened to me in my life just happened this last September: I'm talking about my book signings in Polson and Chicago because boy oh boy: nice is what they were!
First, in Polson: Marilyn Maier, owner of Page by Page Books put on one of the prettiest events I've ever seen in our great town, complete with champagne and sparkling cider, and held in her truly exquisite bookstore.
Thanks to her ferocious publicity campaign and the kindness of all our friends, the signing drew a crowd of over 75 people.
That's a LOT!
Many thanks to Marliyn, and many thanks to our excellent friends who came and made it all work.
|To quote The Kinks: |
"All of my friends were there...not just my friends,
but their best friends, too."
As I say: it's one of the nicest things that have ever happened to me in my life - and one of the greatest memories I'm sure I'll ever have.
