Marvelous reading at Bookworm on Friday; thanks to everyone who attended (24 of you), the lucky 13 open mic readers!!! Garrett Rutledge and Carlos Martinez and one of the best independent new and used bookstores in Seattle–Bookworm Exchange on Rainier in Columbia City. We got there early to beat the Mariners game traffic and had happy hour appetizers and a couple full price appetizers at the wonderful La Medusa Restaurant across the street from the bookstore.
Today, Saturday it was the Sarah Singer Memorial at the Seattle Tennis Club. It was good to remember Sarah and see her Son, grand kids and others. J. Glenn Evans, Connie Hutchinson, Ann ? and I read several S.S. poems and many told anecdotes about Sarah. She was about 95 when she died this past January. Nice memorial…
