New Love & Widened Horizons Later in Life

Book Launch at Book Passage

Thrilling turnout last night--a staffer said about 350 people came! Book Passage rigged up a broadcast into their cafe to accommodate the overflow crowd and, as their large lot was filled to capacity, people also filled the neighboring DMV parking lot.
People were attentive and seemed appreciative. Three of the people profiled in the book spoke: two poets with romantic and sexy poems about each other and one woman with a touching anecdote about the way her then 90 year-old sweetheart asked her to "go steady." I read a passage about Tricia Elam's search and ultimate success in finding the "chandelier kiss" that she sought--and the passionate relationship that followed. The audience had interesting questions to ask, and a lively discussion ended the evening.
