Adventures In BooklandPosted: October 17, 2012
This is a picture of the work Skyla and I did on Saturday night at the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association annual trade show. As I mentioned in the previous post, she came along to be my helper, and she performed her jobs–helping me navigate through Tacoma, opening books to the signing page, keeping the signing table organized–admirably. We met booksellers from all over the Pacific Northwest, every one of them kind, encouraging and interested.
But the high point for me came when people started asking Skyla to sign the books. Watching her carefully write her name and proudly hand a book to someone will be a lasting memory. Almost as good as the first salmon she boated on her own this summer.
