1. The video below is of an event that already happened. It's a Q&A I did with a lovely (and lively!) group at a senior center in Greenwood.
2. Also in Greenwood is the Holiday Bookfest (click here for details). That has not happened yet. It's a short, quick event this Saturday afternoon with a lot of authors. I'm only presenting for fifteen minutes (at 3:30pm!). If you're in the neighborhood, great. I'll be at my table and would love to chat it up with you. If not, it's really no big deal! Because–
3. Friday evening, December 6th, is the big event. That's up in Lake Forest Park, where there's free parking and minimal traffic. If you come to one event of mine this year, make it this one. Because I'll be there, and because Susanna Ryan will be there. Her illustrations and book share in common with mine the idea of deciding to look at things in a positive light. It's about the intention. Third Place Books (and everywhere else, for that matter) doesn't often do double-header author events like this, and it's going to be special.
We'll be diving deep and exploring more than just our respective books; it's about the bigger questions we carry with us these days, how to go about existing and treating others during dark times. What to hang onto. I don't have all the answers, but spending an evening sharing stories and talking about these things can't be the worst way to go. Third Place in Lake Forest Park has plenty of parking (thought I'd throw that in there again...) and plenty of convenient bus service; I promise this one will be worth the trek.
Yes, these are all in the north end. I know. But that's temporary, I promise! I'm in the process of working something out with the Seward Park Third Place Books (where my book is also on sale!), for a possible talk there later next year.
Thanks again to all of you, each of you, for your support and enthusiasm.
See you soon.
