Water Street Books, Williamstown, Mass., 12.3.09

Last night I did my very first in-store author event in my old hometown at Water Street Books in Williamstown, Mass. This was a trial run for my bookstore shtick — something in between just signing and schmoozing and my fully staged multimedia performance thingy. I spoke off  the cuff about how the book came to be; read a few snippets from the book; picked up the guitar and played and sang a bit in the context of demonstrating a few points; and answered some great questions from some old friends and acquaintances and some new ones.

Bookseller Rich Simpson is an old friend and acquaintance – gosh, I’ve known Rich I think since 1985, when he was working at the erstwhile Renzi’s Bookstore on Spring Street. He was a really wonderful and welcoming host, and he snapped the accompanying photo.

Tonight: The Bookloft, in my hometown of Great Barrington, Mass., 7pm.
