Jenny Milchman charmed our attending members, answering all questions whether they related to Cover of Snow (our May discussion book), As Night Falls (her latest book), police procedures, writing advice, or favorite goodies! Speaking of which, she loved getting our chocolates -- and really appreciated getting our 50th anniversary logo-ed travel mug! Considering the miles both Jenny and Josh (and their children!) put into meeting readers, she said it was the perfect library gift.
Here is the promised photographic evidence of a very good time being had:
MAF member Bev examines evidence of new books! Jenny gets our MAF chocolates -- & toe tag!
Some MAF members just hanging out with Jenny.

Josh receiving his well-earned treat - also complete with a toe-tag of his own.
Barbara's Bookstore personnel couldn't have been nicer, and their store is cozy and welcoming. I came away with a few goodies from Jenny as well. And MAF members will get a chance to receive some of them when next we meet. The event finished for us with a very yummy early dinner at Stix and Stones Wood Fired Pizza. Molto bene!
