Joyce Faulkner did a reading and book signing at Paragraphs on Padre Blvd this afternoon. After discussing her books, she read two of her short stories. Each moved the audience and elicited responses.
Charles and Mary Russell Muchmore took a break from packing to meet Joyce. They are leaving for home this week. Their enthusiasm for life is always a joy.
Sally Scaman's fun-loving spirit has added to every signing she's attended.
I met George Gause at a couple of presentations about Emergence: The John Bax Story. Today we met his wife Virginia. Both have a background as librarians at the University of Texas - Pan Am. They have spent many years in the Rio Grande Valley and I think they know everyone!
Thanks to Alice Bax and Nancy Smith for attending another of our events. Janice is visiting the island from Albuquerque. She is finishing her manuscript and we enjoyed talking 'author stuff' with her.
Joyce appreciated all the people who stopped by to learn about her books. Afterwards, we spent quite a while discussing books, happenings and life in general. It was an enjoyable afternoon with great people and interesting conversation.
Thanks to Joni and Griff (owners of Paragraphs) for providing a forum for authors on South Padre Island. We always appreciate your support.
