Rita Mae Brown and I rocked the house at Border's Wednesday night at Bailey's Crossing, Va. Rita Mae is an amazing speaker, funny, smart and provocative. We drew more than 150 people and were signing books for a long time and really sparked off of on another. She is intelligent on many fronts, from dogs to fox hunting to the classics to George Washington. It was great doing a signing with her, lots fun. The questions were also great – we talked about animals and spirituality, the impact animals had on our lives and so many good questions about Rose and the novel.
Earlier in the day Maria and I went to the United States Holocaust Museum. A powerful couple of hours. Thursday, back home on the train. Friday night, 7 p.m., talk and signing at the Crandall Public Library, Glens Falls, N.Y., courtesy of Red Fox Books. Then Saturday, reading and signing and talk at the Halfmoon Library in Clifton Park, NY., 2 p.m. Then off to Ohio, Book Loft, Sunday 2 p.m., Columbus.
