My appearance at Illinois Central College yesterday went very well. As you know, they invited me to speak and hold a book signing in honor of National Library Week. The turnout was better than I expected, and it was one of the best question-and-answer sessions for which I’ve ever participated. We ran the whole gamut from publishing trends to my thoughts on Print-On-Demand technology to what sort of books I like to read.
The audience’s general amiability and politeness, as well as thoughtful questions and comments, really made it a joy for me and more than worth my time. I wouldn’t hesitate to return to ICC if invited.
I want to thank Heidi Rhea for inviting me to ICC, Cate Parish for giving her my name, the rest of the ICC Library staff for organizing a splendid event, and those generous folks who showed up and were fantastic participants.
Moments such as yesterday fill a writer’s heart with delight.
