Saturday, September 17th from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

For a book signing.

The Green Jazz Band trio will play. Peter McLean will talk about the Salem “chair” maquettes. (And you will eat and drink … )

– Sherry

The After Word: It’s Tuesday, three days after the amazing event at the Gallery, an SRO crowd (75 +) listening to the trio from the Green Jazz Band, enjoying wine and delicious hors d’oeuvres provided by dear friends, learning about Chris Horton and Peter McLean’s “chair” maquettes that illustrate the book, and then listening to my reading. I’d rather read than talk so I was in my element. The audience could not have been more warm and responsive. The whole evening was thrilling for me, deeply rewarding. Thanks so much to everyone who attended!
