Another Commentary on Author Photos


Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz.  Sitting on outdoor sculpture with lots of hair.  No dogs this time.

Kill Room by Jeffery Deaver.  Bald.  Striped Shirt.  Indoor portrait with dark background.  Deaver is a good guy.  I emailed him a couple years ago to thank him for coming to Murder and Mayhem in Muskego and he responded saying thanks in return. Deaver had a very good short story about a mathematician turned policeman in the mystery story compilation Transgressions.

Classified by Fern Michaels.  Same photo of her on a couch with three dogs.  She does not look happy.  Her expression says, "Let's get this over with, I have books to write and dogs to walk."

Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham.  Graham was a big-time TV star so I expected a much bigger photo on the back to sell this.  She is sitting on outdoor furniture, bending forward to put her hands on her elevated knees.  Hoop earrings.

Is This Blog Still Active?


Renovation Celebration on June 1st

This was a fairly low-key event.  I said a few things.  A representative of the Library Friends said a few things.  The City Administrator said a few things.  A Library Board member said a few things.  (My comments were the best.)

The broad in the pink shirt cut the cake for me.

That kid in the blue shirt kept asking if he could have more cake.
