Quick note and update for those who’ve told me they’d like to get a signed copy of What We Hold In Our Hands: a Slow Road Reader directly from my bony hands.

I was just invited to have a table this week at the Jacksonville Center for the Arts Friday Night meet the artist event, always fun (with wine and crumpets!) and a place for interesting conversation before going to dinner and the Jamboree. I think the stated time frame is 5 til 8.

I’ll be happy to inscribe your book(s) for Father’s Day. Just a reminder. You WILL remember to get something for dad, of course.
