The first book event in the United States was Tuesday night at Broadway Books in Portland. The event was again more than I could have ever expected. Over 40 people came and I spoke for about 35 minutes and then people asked wonderful questions. There were questions and comments from a number of South Africans who live in Oregon & the spirit was energized and thoughtful. I have to thank Mike Munk and his list serve LastMarx, John Dougherty at Thirsters, Don Wardell of Wanderers, and Bill Bigelow from Rethinking Schools for helping to get the word out. Finally, thanks to Broadway Books for hosting the event.
