Yesterday’s dinner and reading was a lot of fun. We had a good turnout for the pre-reading meal, about 15 people. Here’s the table full of us, on the McMenamin’s patio:
Going clockwise from the lower left, I think I can capture all these names.
Which I wore through dinner and partway through the reading.
We had a pretty good turnout at Powell’s. Peter Honingstock did his usual wonderful job of hosting. I tried to shoot some footage for Donnie Reynolds, which resulted in moderate hilarity around adjusting the field expedient camera stand. I spoke briefly about some of the things going on in my writing and personal life, read the very beginning of Kalimpura, then the calming-the-storm scene from the book’s second section, took some Q&A, and a signed a bunch of titles. All in all, it was quite a good evening.
My thanks to everyone who turned up at dinner, and all the more so to everyone who made it to the reading.
