I’m having fun selling and signing my books today in the City Hall Rotunda. Catherine Smentkowski, my big source at City Hall, took these pictures. The three books I’m holding in one picture are my three books (of course!) The one book I’m holding in the other picture is Kevin Killeen’s classic about life in Webster Groves in the 1960s, Never Hug a Nun. I’m reading it in the moments I’m not selling.
