Author Talk

I walked to Powell's for an author's talk.  The seats were mostly full already by the time I got there, and I plopped myself on a bench on the side, where I had a good view, and started sketching one of the other people waiting.  And an employee came out with a cart and set up another row of chairs.

But the talk ended up being a dud, because there had been protests at the author's talks in other cities.  And so he didn't talk.  He sat down at a table to sign books.  And did offer to answer questions, but only one-on-one.  So half the people got up and stood in line at the table (including the woman that I was sketching) while the other half got up and walked out.  And the man came back and started putting the chairs away.
