Good fun at the reception for San Diego Public Library’s 48th Annual Local Author Exhibit last night at the brand-spanking-new Central Library on Park Avenue. Truly a remarkable monument to learning and literature, and a delightful place to hang out. (It even has a whistling dome.) Many thanks to Library Director Deborah Barrow for hosting the event.

The local author exhibit runs through the month of February.

Nice to see many familiar faces as well as make new acquaintances. I especially enjoyed seeing three of “my” authors there—those for whom I have edited books:

Larry Edwards with Christoper Vera.

Barbara McNally will be signing books at Warwick’s in La Jolla (San Diego) on Sunday, Feb. 2 (that would be tomorrow) at noon.

Christopher Vera formally launches his book on Sunday, Feb. 16, at Expressive Arts in San Diego.

I found my book, Dare I Call It Murder?: A Memoir of Violent Loss, sitting next to a humor book about nursing. Not sure if there’s any significance in that or not, other than I have a cousin who’s a nurse, and I know several nurses—and they all like to laugh.
