At 7, we went inside. Brian gave a 20-30 minute presentation, followed by Q&A and a whole bunch of signing. Rumor has it that we sold 37 of Bryan's books (plus a bunch more besides). Joni and I went out to dinner while the event was still going on. When we passed by the store after dinner, Steve was still working on getting the garbage cans loaded. And it was 9:40!
I want to thank Bryan and his amazing team at Pure Matter - Courtney (who's also his wife), Tracy, Joey, and Ryan. They brought the wine (VHOB took care of the food) and communicated with me regularly from inception to the night of. And I have to say that we all did a darn good job!
I've got some pictures I will post here. But I'm going to put a bunch more on Facebook. Lots of fun.
