Thanks for posting that, BCG. I really wish I could make it, but I'm at a wedding that night. Have fun!

Thanks for that jro. I'm going to be at Writing Outside the Margins, so maybe I'll see babblers there too.

It was lots of fun, there were great readers and performers. Lee Maracle told a few stories, I've loved her work for a really long time.

I left right when the "party" began, the dancing and the djs. It was 11 and I was kinda tired. The staff did amazing work to put the evening together. There were maybe 150 people there I think? I'm bad at counting people.

35 years is an incredible accomplishment for an independent bookstore.
