Thank you, Susie, for driving 10 hours roundtrip!

Hi everyone,

Home again and ready for a work week with few breaks, the first such week in quite a while. My sincere appreciation to Susie Wilson Foote (whose charming daughter Emily Susanne took this picture) for driving five hours to the festival in Rochester from Redding Pennsylvania, a trip of 280 miles.
Susie, brought an old copy of THE BOY WITH A DRUM for me to sign. Holding a copy of my first book back in 1969 brought back an instant flood of warm memories. I’m not only slimmer now, I think I also grew a couple of inches taller!
