Libby and I came up to the Boston area for Grace's book launch for Starry River of the Sky at Porter Square Books. As soon as I got off the Amtrak train in South Station, I realized that it's been a while since I've come up to Boston (aside from a quick one-day jaunt to Boston for a meeting earlier in the year). I'm sad I didn't have a chance to contact many friends in advance of my trip (aside from my Twitter and Facebook posts about the book launch), but it was nice to see so many familiar faces at the event.
It was a rainy, gloomy Sunday, but that didn't deter a nice big crowd from coming out. It was a full house! Standing room only--and best of all, there were so many kids in attendance:
Speaking of cookies, a young fan brought Grace this awesome homemade cookie bouquet! Check out all of the book covers--the colors are spot-on, especially for Dumpling Days--can you name the book titles?
