The pile of “To Read” books on my nightstand grew by two books this evening — Zahrah the Windseeker by Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu and Gregory Frost’s Shadow Bridge — after I attended an author event featuring both (and Jennifer Stevenson) at The Book Cellar. All the authors did readings and then they opened it up to an audience Q&A. I couldn’t help myself: I asked a million questions (well, three — out of the four asked by audience members in sum). It was like being in college again! My cobwebby brain was so happy.
On the way back to The Great White Moose, I stopped at Cafe Neo for a yummy goat cheese-fresh spinach crepe and an iced tea. Although there was a stack of high chairs in the back, a changing table in the bathroom, and a “babyccino” on the menu, that place is so not kid-friendly.
