Richard Russo Visit
We had a wonderful visit with Pulitzer Prize winning author Richard Russo on Saturday. Such a treat to find out that an author whose writing we admire is also charming, funny and genuinely pleased to meet all of his fans! After a day of running all over the Cape to sign books (and fighting the worst traffic snarls we have seen on Cape Cod in quite some time–which is saying something!) Richard Russo and his wife Barbara chatted with guests at a dinner reception we held as a fund raiser for the Sandwich Public Library and then quickly drove over to the Sandwich High School auditorium to read from “That Old Cape Magic”, answer questions and sign books for over 350 of his fans! Whew, what a day!
Here is a picture of Richard and Barbara at our Table #17 we set up at the dinner reception (you are going to have to read the book to get that joke!) and a view of the long book signing line at the high school.
