AARP Talk...

Thanks to the 120 or so AARP members who attended my talk at their meeting yesterday at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Duluth Lakeside. I always get a bit nervous when I have to talk before a group–writing comes easier for me than public speaking–but this group of age peers made me feel very welcome. I was asked to talk about my career as a newspaper journalist as part of this program. Of course, it was really nice that so many in the audience bought my book after my talk as well. As much as I dread talking before groups, I end up enjoying it. So I guess I can safely say that I am available if your group or organization wants to invite me to give a talk. And... keep telling your friends and neighbors that Cooler Near the Lake is still a good book to read and buy!!! (Shameless hawking, I know... but I still have a whole bunch of books left to sell.)
