My Tucson trip

June 1st, 2006


I’m posting from LaGuardia airport, while I wait for my third flight of the day to take me back to VT. I have 15 minutes before boarding. I just wanted to say that I had a really great time in Tucson. It was totally worth all the travel hassles. First of all, I got there in time to swim in the pool. I haven’t been swimming in I don’t know how many years.

And then an astonishingly large and enthusiastic crowd came to my talk at the library. I was braced for a similar showing to the one I got at the Dallas Public Library last October. Ten people came to that, and seven of them were librarians. But there was a whole mess of people last night in Tucson. I did a two part presentation–first I talked about Dykes to Watch Out For, then I read from Fun Home. It was the first time I’ve done a public reading from Fun Home, and I was surprised by its somber tone. But people really seemed to like it. Here I am signing books after.
