What could cause me to get me up before 6 on a Saturday morning? I’d say the chance to commiserate with the shoppers at the Tower Grove Farmers Market. I had a stupendous time selling and signing my books this morning at the market. Actually, because of a conflict, the market was at the City Garden Montessori School, at 1618 Tower Grove Avenue. But I’ll be there when the morning market is in Tower Grove Park on May 16, May 23, June 13, July 4, August 1, August 8 and August 15.
The guy above bought all three books. So did C.A. Lefton, below. Doug Schneider, an early bird buyer, grabbed a copy of The Making of an Icon. The shoppers I spoke with were fascinating people, just as you’d expect on the South Side. I hope to see you when I’m next there, on May 16.
