Seattle and beyond

Everything is elevated to a whole new level of quality in this city. Even the meatloaf is good out here. I had a fantastic reading at Seattle Public Library's Ballard branch, sponsored by the Secret Garden Bookstore. The library itself is something you have to see. (It's all green construction. There is a field of actual grass growing on the roof!!) The audience was fantastic. More about all this later, but I'm leaving for Portland this very second. (look for my interview in today's Portland Oregonian. I'm speaking tonight at 7 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 12000 S.E. 82nd Ave, Portland.

It was terrific, because I got to have dinner with three new friends, including the author Margot Kahn, (Horses That Buck) who was a surprise visitor to the reading. My Seattle visit was too short but it was great all around.
