It was great to have most of the Olympic team in attendance, with all the excitement of a potential medal in the games.

Local Author’s Day, Reading Central Library

waiting, hoping, looking

 

I met many local authors on the day and was pleased to take part.  I think many readers were doing their Christmas shopping elsewhere although quite a few made it later in the day.  It was a Saturday after all:)  Remember you can always email me shirley@theycallme.org to order your books.

I was pleased to have lovely guests who were already interested in the topic.  Everyone participated and some entertaining stories were shared.  I could not have asked for a better evening.
