Last Saturday, I celebrated the publication of While He Was Away with dear friends and neighbors at one of my favorite local bookstores, The Bookstore in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
It was a wonderful, meaningful time for me, full of laughter, good conversation, popsicles, Perrier, and Madeleines (in honor of Proust’s hunger for memory).
Here are a few pictures from the day. OK. More than a few. (And it was all I could do to keep from including still more than more than a few, believe me.)
