Great NW Bookstore

At the cocktail party I had a nice chat with Phil W., owner of The Great Northwest Bookstore. We've known one another by sight for decades but never really sat down for a long chat before, so it was cool. He was excited about the concept of the review and had some good ideas for new directions in which to take it, like including oral histories.

Met a young writer who was a real fan of Oregon Fever, the anthology of Northwest Review articles I edited. Great to see a younger generation understand what a gold mine that publication was and how much we've lost without it. This lad got it!

I had a good time -- and left after a couple hours before I turned into a grouch, which happens after I reach my limits of socialization.
