I had a good event at Changing Hands bookstore, in Tempe, Arizona, tonight. So many people came to the talk that the bookstore had to rearrange chairs quickly, in a larger space, to accommodate them all.
In the audience, among others, was fellow ScienceBlogger John Lynch, the author of Stranger Fruit and a prof here at Arizona State. And so were not one, not two, but three of my uncles who live in the area…one of whom, my uncle Tom, is pictured here along with John and I. You see, we got beers afterwards. Oh, did we.
Tomorrow I’m off to Albuquerque. I love the Southwest. I only wish I could stay longer (which is how I feel about every place I visit…)
P.S.: John Lynch has a post on our encounter as well. He puts up a slightly different pic in which I am smiling too widely and my uncle looks slightly demonic. He concurs, though, that we put back a few…
