Had a great couple of days in western Maryland. Before my reading at Main Street Books in Frostburg last night, I had dinner at the Princess Restaurant with Fred Powell, the bookstore's owner. We sat in the famous Truman booth, of course. The restaurant's owner, George W. Pappas, picked up the tab, which was very nice of him - though I have been responsible for getting the Princess a fair amount of publicity lately!

Last night's reading was a great success, as was today's at the Frederick County Public Library. Now I'm in Wheeling, West Virginia, for a few days. When I checked into the motel I picked up a copy of "Roundabout," the monthly guide to events in the Wheeling area. Much to my surprise, my reading is listed!
