Doozie and I popped into Water Street Bookstore this evening to hear the author Tom Ryan talk about his volume and purchase his book. Funny, Lara Bricker and I once discussed putting out a paper similar to the author’s Newburyport tattler. After listening to his travails concerning that publication, I think the tone of the Crier is just right for our little Town.
Dan Chartrand really does a great service with these Author nights. Some folks had driven a couple of hours to attend. I sat near the podium as the line formed with folks wanting a word and a signature from the author. Doozie was way back in the queue. I was really struck by the personal comments voiced by some attendees to Tom Ryan. The book obviously has had an impact. We are going to read it in bed tonight, as the wind continues to howl. Check out the Moon tonight!
