Oh, you already know how I feel about independent bookstores.
And if you know me, you know how I feel about Clinton Book Shop and Rob and Harvey (and you too, Biz!) I love love love it and I always feel welcome and even with Friday night football games to compete with on a quiet Friday night, we sold nearly all copies of VERA DIETZ and had a great time. Thank you to all who came out! Great to meet you MJ & Alison & great to see new faces!
Here are some pictures...
Here's me with Alissa Grosso, author of the forthcoming Popular, coming from Flux in May 2011.
Here's a great shot of the Clinton Book Shop Crew. (Rob, the alternative to this was the one where you put bunny ears on me and Mr. King said you'd prefer to not look belligerent on my blog. I think he needs to get you know you better, because you'd probably disagree, but I'm using this one.) That's Rob, Me, Harvey & Biz.
And the night was made extra special because my sister Robyn and sister-in-law Lori always come down to Clinton to see me when I'm there!!
(The night was also made special by Sara J. Henry's presence. You guys NEED TO READ Learning to Swim her debut, coming February 2001...but we got no pictures of ourselves together at the event. Boo.)
Okay--TODAY IS READING, PA--the hometown crowd! Come out to Borders on Woodland Road (across from the Berkshire Mall) to see me! I'll be there from 2-4pm.
Oh hey. And today is now the deadline for the 2+2=4 contest. Winner announced tomorrow.
