I hosted an authors talk at work on Monday. I was nervous as hell to meet him, let alone introduce him, since the video ends up on YouTube. But it wasn't so bad! I have lots of thoughts about the talk and the author himself, since I have a new swelling of literary admiration for him now, but since I am, after all, at work, I'll just leave you with the video for now. He reads my favorite essay at the end (after the Q&A). It almost made me cry. No joke.
