    Book Signing!

    July 6, 2008 by Brandy Vencel

    Yesterday was Si’s first official book signing for Culture Makers. I know I don’t post many photos here, but I just couldn’t resist posting a photo of the hottie very serious author-type man at work {please note the dimples for which I married him as they are very important to me}:

    Did you see that there are only two books in the picture? He actually sold out and had to run to his car and gather the stack of books he had taken just in case! It had been my prayer that this would be an encouraging time for Si, and also for the bookseller, and our prayers were answered.

    The bookstore wants to buy more, which is great.

    When I was visiting the event with the children, I noticed that the store had a stack of classics on sale for $4.50 each. I subtly handed one to E. {The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, to be precise} and told him to let Daddy know that this book was something Mommy would like. Apparently, when Si went up to purchase it, he was told that they don’t take credit cards for anything under $5! Not to be detered, he grabbed up another beauty, Tales from King Arthur. He had done such a good job at bringing in a crowd that the store gave him an “employee” discount!

    What a wonderful day all around.
