It is a cold rainy day here but never mind, I'll be locked in my office writing all day anyway.
First I thought I would write to you!
I am about to cross another thing off my bucket list.
Some women dream of meeting movie stars, others dream of meeting rock stars, but I dream of meeting
|That is the face of a content man!|
As you know, I am crazy about McCullough and his work. And happily for me, he has a new book coming out May 5th about the Wright Brothers.
|You can read more about the book here|
Best of all, Mr. McCullough is going to be in Boston towards the end of May and I will be there! (well Barry too, but he doesn't seem quite as giddy as me). I was hovering over my keyboard the morning the tickets went on sale, and was giddy when I got mine (What? You think I was crazy to think there might have been a run on this engagement? tosh!). When I got to the part in the online form where I had to say where I'd heard about the talk I dutifully wrote in "I follow David McCullough" at which point my daughter stopped me and made me add "on facebook" lest Mr. McCullough get some kind of restraining order for me.
I hope to meet the man in person and have Barry get a picture of him signing my book and if I do, you know I will post it here.
Adding to the jolliment of two nights in Boston, we plan to stop in and see our lovely Lane en route home. She has seen Mr. McCullough live and assures me he lives up to my hype.
By the way, I do realize this makes me a history geek. But I care not. My only warning to the Bostonians in attendance will be this: best not block my view of the great man....
In honour of Mr. McCullough's new book, let's make a cocktail, shall we?
Have a happy Friday!
