Susan and Joe, her partner of 26 years, are on a cross country book tour, and this is what they are traveling in: a van wrapped with Susan's photos and artwork, celebrating the book.
The book signing at my local bookshop was fun, but the tea at a suburban country club two days later was pretty close to perfect. Because we were sitting around linen-covered tables, there was even more conversation and exchanges of information between the girlfriends than there had been at the book shop two days earlier. At my table were a group who had driven down from Wisconsin, one all the way from Green Bay (4 hours?). These are devoted fans, people! It was wonderful to meet them and exchange stories about how we had gotten to know of Susan, favorite books, things that had inspired us. It was a magical afternoon.
