Way Cool!

I’ve lived in the DC suburbs most of my life. DC is a great place, full of history and politics, museums and monuments. Whenever I get a chance to go into the city, I’m always impressed by/amazed at/proud of my “hometown.”

When I was a kid, we’d take field trips to the museums.

When out-of-town friends come to visit, I take them sightseeing (I still haven’t taken a tour of the White House, but now that a friend of mine works there (no, not the Big Guy), I think I’ll be getting a private tour soon).

Sometimes, my wife and I take the kids in to see a special exhibit at one of the museums or art galleries.

On occasion, we even brave the crowds and take a walk amongst the cherry blossoms.

So I’m super-duper thrilled to be having a book event at one of the country’s most prestigious institutions.

On Thursday (tomorrow, May 20), I’ll be discussing DIAMONDS FOR THE DEAD at the Library of Congress.Library of Congress

Yes, THE Library of Congress.

The talk begins at noon, and it will take place in the Pickford Theater in the Madison Building (3rd Floor). If you’re in the area, please come by and join the fun—I’d love to see you there!

I agree with everyone else. Beyond "way cool" and well into "awesome." Congratulations and be sure you take a minute to look around and let it all soak in.
