Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Afternoon in Tuscany

Posted on: July 16, 2006

The Friends of the Library event was a great success, with over 100 people, 13 local authors, book sale, silent auction and an absoultely gorgeous setting. Alan and Margaret came up which was super wonderful of them (plus we finally got to show them our house), I learned that one of the City Council members had an uncle in Westport, and got to see Kay and her husband (hello!) and it sounds like Kay may join the ranks of bloggers soon herself (cool!) It was very very hot out in the sun, but a lovely party and a great start to the fundraising for furniture and art at the new library. Each author spoke for a few minutes about their books, and we bought two to be signed (Silicon Secrets for me and The Passionate Olive as a gift for some friends who like olive oil — when Life, Death & Bilays comes out I definitely want to read that one too)

A very special thanks to Mom for her generousity with some silent auction items!

Thanks for your kind words about Triangle.

I will be reading at Politics & Prose this coming Monday at 7, and would be delighted to meet you and any other members of your book club there.
