Sherman and I did a reading together at the Seattle Public Library this past Thursday, and it went GREAT. Lots of people (700-ish)… laughter (of course)… tears (literally!). I didn’t tell Sherman what I’d put together for the PowerPoint presentation, so our repartee was not ONLY witty, but spontaneous, which went over well. As always, I forgot to plant a camera in the audience, so I’m trying to track down some photos.
I’ll be joining Sherman again at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park on October 30, 7:00pm.
Big news!!: Diary was nominated for a National Book Award!!!! Jen Hunt, our editor at Little, Brown, sent me a huge bouquet of roses.
