21 years is a lot of years

So, today is my anniversary and I'm in the library because Mr. King is working the circ desk and we're going to go out to lunch. In between then, I have to finish the library minutes for tonight's meeting and check the personnel paperwork I'm supposed to have with me for the same meeting.

We'll call this the library anniversary.

Anyway, here's a picture or two of us since I'm no longer all that shy to share things like this here.


That's Mr. King's "Hey you crazy Americans, why are you
throwing birdseed at me?" face.

Yes. I am wearing a leather in this picture.
OTHER NEWS I DIDN'T TELL YOU LAST TIME:

A lovely review appeared in the San Francisco Book Review last week for Ask the Passengers.
An excerpt:
It shouldn’t be a shock to anyone by now that A.S. King has written another masterpiece with Ask the Passengers. The depth and growth of Astrid through her own self-discovery accompanied by friends, family, and the girl she falls in love with make this a book worthy of any shelf.
AND UPCOMING STUFF:

Are you near Bradford, PA? Next Wednesday (3-20) night I'll be speaking on the U of Pittsburgh Bradford campus about all sorts of things from 6-8pm.

ALSO DO NOT MISS THE NYC AUTHOR CARNIVAL!

Congratulations on 21 years! I'm sneaking up behind you with 19 this 10/31. Couples like us are rare breeds in this world, and the time together is a thing to be proud of and celebrate.

Also congrats on yet another great review of Ask the Passengers!

Here's to another 21 years and evermore stellar reviews for stellar books!

Aw, that's so sweet! Never imagined you in a traditional wedding gown, so I was happy to see the leather jacket.

Praise for Ask the Passengers is well-deserved. It's a beautiful story, beautifully told.
