An SRO audience of 170 attended this event, where I spoke about my 2009 novel, Crossers, and my forthcoming travel book, The Longest Road. Sometimes readings and/or lectures can be tedious for a writer; this one was a pleasure. The audience was enthusiastic and asked good questions. Afterward, I autographed copies of Crossers provided by the Antigone book store of Tucson, and pretty much sold out the stock. Not too bad for a couple of hours work. And it was gratifying to see a real, live, independent book seller selling real, live, printed books.
