Second Hand Report on the Book Conference

My Bookman at his store manager's conference in Florida reports that Tom Wolfe (yup, that Tom Wolfe) was a very interesting man. He talked about his novels, writing in general and told stories about when he was a journalist. And he just called to report that he had just finished hearing Lemony Snicket talk. He said it was the most fun he has ever had at an author event. There was something with an accordion and audience participation and falling over dead. I am green (and just about every other color too) with envy.
