I arrived to find Jim Thatch, who books and coordinates these programs for the library, setting up a big-screen TV and rows of seats in the lobby. "What's this for?" I asked.
"We're fully booked and there's a waiting list," Jim said. "This is for people who might not be able to get in."
Incredibly, I did not take a picture of this. Here's the best I can do:
Even beyond that, what a wonderful evening. The crowd was enthusiastic and affable, and stuck around for the whole hour and a half (rather unusual, I'm told), and engaged me in some some very pleasant and informative conversations during the break and after the show. Thanks again to Jim and the truly first-class Hunterdon County Library.
We'll be doing the same show (mostly) on March 10, in the Clinton NJ branch of the library. Looking forward to it; drop by if you're in the neighborhood. Maybe it'll be in 3D this time.
