Last night's event
Thank you Kenyon College Alumni Association. You helped a lot in putting people in the seats at Books, Inc., last night in Mountain View, California by spreading word of the event. The first person in the audience to show up was Isaac, who graduated from Kenyon nearly 50 years ago. He's a former professor at Berkeley (I think). Extremely interesting guy--and he laughed at all of my jokes during the talk, which made me like him even more. Books Inc., is the "West's Oldest Independent Bookseller." Their store in Mountain View is in an ideal location for walk-in traffic in the evening (talk about carbon friendly), and a few people who wandered inside during my talk ended up sitting down and listening.
