Book launch: Warm Cup of Wisdom

I’m always nervous before speaking at a bookstore event. Will anyone show up? Will listeners be interested? Will many people want to buy the book? I’ve had mostly good experiences so far, but you never know.

Fortunately, lots of people showed up for the launch of Warm Cup of Wisdom at University Book Store, and all seats were taken. Friendly faces smiled at me as I spoke, making me feel less nervous.  And all the books sold out!  Partly because I mentioned that Warm Cup of Wisdom would make a great holiday gift. It would!

Here are a few photos of the happy event.
