Felice Picano and Eric -Andrew Katz,

Felice Picano (20th Century Un-limited and Twelve O’Clock Tales) and Eric Andrews-Katz (The Jesus Injection). Eric was very funny. He said his book’s title is pronounced, The Hay-Zeus Injection. Felice regaled us with stories about his travels.

More of our table. On the first day I spent the 1-3 shift with Sheri. That's her book up at the top. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of her. But she's my new best friend.

Richard Natale and me. I'm pushing my book, The Odd Fellows, of course. I read Richard's book, Junior Willis, last night. I really liked it. Richard's a wonderful writer. Obviously, Richard and I both think we're movie stars.

Here’s Alan Chin promoting his book The Plain of Bitter Honey. Alan was responsible for the set-up so we all owe him a big THANKS! I just waltzed in (in a manly way) and sat down. Alan did all the heavy lifting.
