Book Expo – New York City

At the Cornell Booth at BEA

Sorry it’s been a little while since my last post. I was in New York doing a signing at the Book Expo (BEA). No, the book isn’t out just yet. Cornell University Press (my publisher) invited me to sign a “Blad,” which is just one chapter of the book.

They served free pie and coffee. The turnout was great. The signing was scheduled from 2:30 – 3:30 but I was signing blad’s until 5:00.  I met so many people, former waitresses, book publishers, librarians, professors, diner aficionados and friends.

MTV showed up along with a few film producers, so I hope to get the documentary underway soon. Overall there was much enthusiasm and great anticipation for the book. I’ll keep you posted!

Great to see you are doing so well. I remember the Mayanesque drawings you used to do when you lived over that club on the Lower Haight.

I have a great publicist, but thanks for asking.
