Fast Weekend

Well that weekend went by in a blur.

After work Friday, I drove the twisted, one-way streets of Lowell to attend the book launch party for the anthology River Muse, a collection of tales about Lowell by talented writers-- some local, and some rather more widely-known and famous. It was a terrific event-- how many book events can fill a hotel ballroom on a nice June Friday night? We had min-readings by a number of the authors, and the proceeds from the book go to a good charity.

Then on Saturday, we had the Chelmsford Local Author Day, where I was one of the 6 writers talking about our work and then signing books for a big crowd. Click the link for writeup and pictures from the event. Great day, and thank you to everyone who helped make it a smash success.

Yesterday was different, as I had to drive to Maine to attend funeral services for a long-time dear friend, who left ths world way too early. Adam Williams was a man who had helped so many others and touched their lives. We're still in a bit of shock at his premature departure from us, but his work and deeds will live on.

So now back to work.
