I attended a book signing yesterday, sponsored by the Akron Manuscript Club, the oldest writing group in Akron at almost 80 years old.
It was hard to sit at the table the whole time and not walk around the farmers' market where the signing took place.
I did manage to step away a couple of times to make a few purchases. I bought home baked cookies and lemon-blueberry scones, honey-blueberry jam, and a tie-dyed T-shirt, the proceeds of which are going toward a high schooler's trip to China with the Confucius Institute.
Needless to say, I spent more than I made selling books : ) But that's not hard for me to do at a venue like this.
