Many thanks to Tracey Davies, her staff, and the Manchester community for a warm welcome at Northshire Bookstore last night. (The third pic from the left is before, not during, reading.) The event was exceptionally well organized and as you can see, publicized.
I'm always happy for an excuse to visit the People's Republic of Vermont. On the way up I stopped for lunch at the Vermont Country Store. It does not serve lunch. But it does have many free samples of artisanal cheeses and sausages. I brought my own toothpick. Security was called. I left quietly.
