IN truth, I had really sort of expected the first event to be more of a -everything-that-went-wrong sort of learning experience. Instead, things went smoothly right from the beginning–sans my getting lost dowtown of course. Apart from that, however, thanks to research and planning, the entire time was wonderul, the location was lovely and I so enjoyed spending time with the people who came. Whether they stayed only a short while or lingered, whether they bought a book or not. It was time well spent and I am appreciative.
