In gratitude: a packed house, books sold

Last night readers and supporters came out in force to celebrate my book launch with me. I am humbled this morning. I’ve read at plenty of events, including dreaded “nobody showed up” readings. Last night drew a standing room crowd, and City Lit Books sold every available copy of The Fugue. Violinist Maria Storm (my wife) played her heart out, and we even had some kids (ours) jumping around in abandon.

All I can say is thank you. Thank you to City Lit, to CCLaP, especially to Jason Pettus, my editor and publisher. Thank you to Maria and our friend, Rita, who helped with the children. And thank you to all the members of the audience, some who drove from as far away as the South Side and Forest Park to attend a reading in a bookstore.

It was a beautiful night. I hope to do something similar again someday soon. You are all wonderful, amazing people.
