Thanks to all the good people who came out for my readings in Vinalhaven and New Brunswick, Maine, and the launch party and reading in Montpelier, Vermont!  I hope everyone enjoyed these gatherings as much as I did.


George Winston — pianist, fan, musicologist, philanthropist, and a good friend for over 40 years — died on June 4.  He leaves a George-shaped hole in the world that will be impossible to fill.

George did good for a lot of people in ways big and small, and I owe him a great deal.  For more about our friendship, and ruminations on what makes for a remarkable person, visit my blog at
