I Drank Wine With John Crowley!
The bookstore I volunteer for organized a "Word Fest." It consisted of readings from top current authors, great music from all over the world, and a snarky sideshow guy who swallowed swords and bashed the government. Afterwards we had an after party at the bookstore where I mingled with authors, musicians, artists, random russian girls, and several bottles of red wine. My boyfriend and I mingled quite a bit with John Crowley, one of our favorite authors. He is an amazing, downtoearth, elegant, intelligent man. I feel so cultured.
After the event I've decided to finally dish out for a great camera. There were so many opportunities for brilliant shots. Between the bands, the authors, the sideshow guy.. argh!
