We went to hear Elmore and Peter at our local bookstore. These two, and especially Elmore, know how to put on a good show. For one hour, Elmore, coaxed by his son, relayed how he began writing, anecdotes about the movies made from his work, his ten rules for writing, etc.
Never once did this man in his eighties show signs of having done this a million times and being bored with it. And not once did his very gracious son, show impatience with how little attention was directed toward him. The crowd, which would have been ten times the size, if the bookstore had thought to even place a poster in their front window, grew over the hour and I was relieved to see some of them were buying Peter's book too.
A good time was had by all. Especially me. Who have you seen do this sort of thing especially well?
