Bummer. I'd definitely have come if it was after work. Can't really miss a day of teaching for it.

Have fun though, that's awesome!

Wish I could make that, but it's a bit of a trip from where I'm at... Sounds like a very interesting chat, plus I'd probably have to try to get an autograph

Honestly, I'm not sure how the day is going to play out. I gather there will be some schmoozing and hobnobbing after I speak, and possibly a tour of the Library, but beyond that I'm just playing it by ear . . . .

Well, if you're free after 4pm, I for one'd be honored to share a pint with some fine fellow BBSers... anyone else?

Damn, I wish I could go. It sounds like fun, but I live on the other side of the country.

I work at the library, so I plan to attend. Unfortunately, after I'm done, it's off to grab a quick lunch and then back to work.
