Elliot Bay, Seattle

What an impressive library.  So nice to see books taken so seriously:Well, except for......due to budget cuts, that sign says.Just as well.  Did me good to get away from books for a while anyway:All these sightseeing pictures because I forgot to get a picture of the Elliot Bay audience--probably for the best, might have weirded them out.  But this was a terrific audience, engaged and really thoughtful questions.  Thank you, Selena, for letting me know how you've been waiting for a new one from me--sorry it took so long!  And thank you, Laurie, for doing such a great job managing the event.
