I don't know how many people are from Connecticut but you have to go to the Essex Library. It is beautiful and the Librarian Judie McCann is WONDERFUL, she is just WONDERFUL. I was able to read my book to the children, take a few photos and admire the great job they did on the remodel. I can't wait to finish my second book to go back. I was a little nervous on the drive down because it was my first official engagement but as soon as you walk through the front doors you are relaxed.
The children enjoyed the story and I enjoyed them. I had friends tell me don't do in person signings, go the virtual route...are they crazy? Yes, I plan to do virtual touring but I could never give up the person to person contact I just caught the bug. This is what I was meant to do, write books and share them with people. I can't see why I can't do both.
Again, check out the Essex Library it is BEAUTIFUL.
