2011 Chicago Book Expo

Okay, this is not chronological, since it took place in October 2011, before Berlin and New York… But better late that never, I suppose.

At an invitation from the talented and intrepid Valya Dudycz Lupescu, I had the great opportunity to read from The Wolves of Pavlava at the 2011 Chicago BookExpo. The reading took place in what used to be a speakeasy during Prohibition, in circle of armchairs, surrounded by candlelight.  Valya also read from her great story, The Silence of the Trees (available on Amazon.com) Before and after the reading, I sat at Valya’s Wolfsword Press table and joined her in talking with exhibitors and visitors. I spent some of my most interesting hours in Chicago talking to readers and artists about the art of writing. There is nothing more stimulating for a writer than spending hours talking to kindred spirit.

The  wonderful  Mr. Walther Dudycz (who took pity on us and brought us one of those amazing, hearty, no fooling around Chicago sandwiches) took this photo of  Valya and me, with copies of The Silence of The Trees by Valya, The Wolves of Pavlava by moi, and yummy cookies.

Valya and I smiling like stars.
