I had a wonderful day talking to indies and librarians yesterday. First, the stores themselves were just beautiful; from the selections to the décor. The people I spoke to were just really warm and welcoming. And the libraries! Big, small, new (three floors!) & old (charming—complete with creaky wood floors and big fireplaces with mantels). The librarians were, in a word, AWESOME! Not only that, but check this out people:
I simply heart the library. After all, this writing stuff quietly began inside of one.
