A Conversation With Paul Golden

Paul came by the bookstore today. He told some lively anecdotes. Wyatt Day happened in also. He, Chris, and Paul chatted animatedly. I enjoyed being a fly on the wall. I'll share what they said as soon as Golden has had a chance to read it first.

Family Business - 4th Generation

Forrest and Andrea work at riverrun when they have time. They are the original proprietor's great grandchildren. There are 5 great grandchildren. Lia might walk down the hill and work when she's a little older. Holly and Bilbo live in England. They'd come in and help wrap packages if they were 3000 miles closer.
Frank and Mary's great grandchildren are all readers.
