This is a book party for THIS IS NOT A CONFESSION.
It looks something like this here…

At the book party, it is important to have the good playing of music by talented friends like Adam Gustavson and Sheri Butts to get things started.
At the book party, we do the wearing of hats and signing of books.
At the book party, we do the posing with friends.
We be sure to stand next to purdy girls to make ourselves look purdier.
We sing the same big train songs to friends who have heard those same big train songs a bunch of times already. And they react with the same skeptical look they always do.
Or they just laugh politely.
We have a great bookstore Short Stories Community Book Hub, owned by Barb Short, to host.
We get the brilliant Executive Director of the arts organization Arts By the People, Paul Rabinowitz, to MC.
Then we get up and do a lot of talking with our hands, and that looks a lot like this here…
Then we have a sit-down and do the drinking of beer and the talking about stuff.
Then we go back to our comfort zone: singing songs about big trains.
