Somebody Else Would Have to Identify the Bodies...

Miss Prothero's Books had a wonderful First Friday. Debbie Knapp of Colorado Homegrown Tales entertained a moveable feast of people from 6:30 p.m. until almost 9 p.m. She read two tales by two local authors -- Linda Berry and Carrie Vaughn. Knapp has a lot of energy and a voice that won't quit. Even though I heard both tales (Closure by Linda Berry and In Time by Carrie Vaughn) three times, I heard something new each time.

Vaughn was unable to come, but Berry came. She brought books. She brought a sparkling sense of humor. She brought a fan club. I quickly became a member. Linda is best known for her Trudy Roundtree mysteries. She gave me some great ideas for the Whodunit Club...If you're in the club, watch out. We'll be reading Death and the Easter Bunny. We'll be playing games. We'll be burning up our little gray cells.

(The title of this blog is borrowed from Linda Berry's Closure.)

Hopefully you sold some books, too! Did you know one of the ads on the blog is for Auntie's bookstore in Spokane?

The ads change. Have you been to Auntie's? One of my college acquaintances used to talk about the store all of the time. Small world.

Debbie Vaughn really brought the stories to life---what a delivery. We enjoyed the evening...
