UNP asked if I'd be interested in working an author autograph session at the Book Expo America trade show, held at the Javits Center in NYC last weekend. At first I was thrilled. Then I was worried: what if no one showed up for my time slot? What if no one likes the book. Everybody hates me! Very middle-school.
But it turned out to be a rewarding experience. The line stretched out quite a ways and the people were quite engaging. Even picked up a few invitations from book store owners and librarians.
