It was a fine day in Annapolis yesterday, as I visited the library to give a reading and autograph some books. Annapolis is a town of 345, according to the sign at the city limits….it was 330 when I was going to school, so it’s undergone some growth!

I got all teary-eyed when they had the library dedication a few years ago, but this time I simply felt proud.
