I have more photos from this weekend's events to post--but I'll have to do it when I get home from Chicago. I'll be there tomorrow at The Book Cellar at 7 pm for Local Author Night. Now, down here in the southern part of the state, we don't think of ourselves as being part of Chicago, though I understand that, in certain quarters, we're considered as part of the Chicago metro area!
Pomegranate will be traveling with me. We're taking the train, which should be fun even though the owls will still be out when we leave the house. If you're in the neighborhood (Madison, WI? Holland, MI? Ann Arbor?), I hope you'll come by to say "hello."
As much as I enjoy touring, I'm anxious to get back to work. On the road I've been reading Elizabeth George's Careless In Red--one of her Lynley books, a comfort series for me. She's so deft. I also picked up Devil In the White City, which I've always wanted to read. Not sure why. Others have said it's not such a good book. We'll see.
There's one other thing I've been dying to do--and that's to pick up on the needlepoint project I've been working on on and off for the past few years. I have this dream of curling up on the couch, with a classic film on the telly, so I can stitch away for a few hours. It's a pipe dream, I fear. I can't sit through an entire film these days.
Upcoming guests: Tim Maleeny, Rosemary Harris, Mario Acevedo. Am I forgetting anyone?
