Many thanks to Renee Owen for organizing our closing event today. About 20 people attended the Show and Tell and Reading from the books. Its always enlightening to hear what has gone into the creation of a book, as well as hearing poetry, random word salads and personal histories … Renee mentioned her childhood obsession with Pippi Longstocking and read a bit where Pippi describes "thing finders," people who have to go out and find things. There are many "thing finders" among the artists who exhibit at Sometimes Books. Perhaps our next show (after "All Over the Map" will be titled "Thing Finders."
