On Tuesday evening, I attended a book reading at the Long Branch Public Library in Toronto's west end.
I had been invited by Dorota, who works there and who had met me at a book signing late last year.
It was a rather mild night for mid-January and there were about 20 people in attendance, including some friends of mine, who surprised me and came out to support the book.
I started the hour by talking about my experiences and why I wrote "Travels in a Blue Chair", then I read two stories from the book, one from Argentina and the other about Fiji. To end the evening I answered some questions from the crowd.
As usual at my events, the interest was overwhelming and it took longer than the one hour allocated. I finished up with a book signing.
I also had many photos takes, as a photographer from SNAP, a glossy monthly Toronto publication was in attendance.
Many thanks to Dorota, the library and all who attended for making me so welcome and getting the new year off to such a positive start!
