New York is cold and raining

ll 012

We had a really fun event at 61 Local in Brooklyn last night with the Boreal authors. The food at the place is yummy, but the Alaskans really took it away. They are born storytellers. I was talking about someone who had “work done,” and they’re all, “Like what on the roof? On the house? On the plumbing? Did she have her place rewired?” And I say, “No, I mean work,” indicating my chest area, and they’re all, “Oh, work?” They’re funny and it was so great to see Joe and Peggy. They’re having fun travelling around with their merry band of Alaskans.

Darlene and I had breakfast with Barbara Jones and I had smoked salmon which is my favorite breakfast, and then the NY Times meetings and Library Journal and a Norton meeting at the Century Club which is super nice and made me feel amazing and important while I was there. It’s like the National Arts Club in that it’s very old and you feel that very wise people come there. I felt right at home.

More meetings Thursday and Friday, I sort of can’t believe I have three more days of work before I go home and three more Red Hen readings. Please come to all of them!
