New Love & Widened Horizons Later in Life

Reading at the Johann Fust Library Foundation, Boca Grande

February 3, 2015

Quick trip to Florida for a reading. The library here had posters made to advertise the reading, so when I walk around downtown I see my red jacketed self looking back at me.

The crowd in Florida contained a few couples who could well have been in my book--they got together late in life. They had some comments to make after my talk--including one woman who said their big question was whether her dog would be compatible with his dog. (Fortunately, the dogs get on very well and their owners do too.) Pat MacDonald was a big hit, telling how she got together with her Winnie 50 years after they stopped dating as teenagers.
