On Saturday we drove to Seaside to shop at the Farmers’ Market. While there I dropped into the book store, Sundog Books, to say hi to the gang and see if they still had some of my titles in stock from my signing in March. They did. They were out of PIRATES and COWBOYS but had CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS and A PLACE TO START A FAMILY in stock.
One of the ladies saw me come in and followed me around to the children’s books. A customer and her niece overheard our conversation and asked if I had written the books I was holding. Turned out she is a librarian at English Landing, a school in St. Louis. We had a good conversation and I signed one of the books for her school library. It was a pleasant experience. Last time I was there, signing, I met two couples from a community near Springfield. Once before that my friend and co-author, Mary Jo Fresch, came by. Seaside is a busy place and that book store is exceptional.
