where the writers are
Library gig
talking to local poets

The June 10th Chaucer presentation at the Claremont Library turned out just fine. The delay in this posting is due to the photos not coming through in a timely manner. [But it seems I haven't caught on to how to insert several photos. Maybe next time.]

My helper/transporter arrived on time. He hefted my books and handouts and a pre-sliced poundcake (to serve) into his car. Found a good parking space at the back door of the library. Had plenty of time to set things up in the meeting room.

The weather was perfection. Most people arrived by 2 p.m. A few more came just after 2. Had time to chat with local poets ahead of time. Two friends I especially hoped would come were able to make it. 

The group was attentive. Had plenty of questions after my talk.  The interest carried over to sales of books and Chaucer t-shirts.  Plenty of handouts were taken. That's what they are there for!

I was asked to sign many of the books. All in all, what more could I ask?
