Magers & Quinn Photos!

I had such a fantastic time last night at Magers & Quinn in Uptown Minneapolis. This fabulous neighborhood bookstore was the site of my first-ever reading for my first novel, The Tale of Halcyon Crane, and it has held a special place in my heart ever since.

The events organizer introduced me with the greatest compliment I've ever received about my writing, saying that at M & Q they think of me as the "Daphne Du Maurier of Duluth." How about that?!

I was really touched by how many people came out to support me in my home town. As I was reading, I looked into the crowd and saw old friends I hadn't seen since high school and college, new friends I've made through the incredible book community here in the Twin Cities — author Peter Geye and local bookmaven Pamela Klinger Horn — and lots and lots of readers. Every seat was filled and people were actually standing in the aisles!

If there was a reading made for me in heaven, this one was it.
