I love when a local author I admire is everywhere I look. This week, it’s been that way with Maria Semple. She kept popping up in my twitter and facebook feeds because she’s been so dang busy! She was on NPR. She was at King’s Books. Somehow she worked some Hermione time-turner-type magic and had a box of freshly-signed books arrive at my bookstore. (She may have had an author escort elf and a publicist helping with that, but still– MAGIC.) Then, of course, Today Will be Different is on the cover of our Holiday Books catalog and on display in every bookstore I visit, usually in the bestseller section and the staff picks.
Alas, I don’t have access to time-turner technology or any other sort of time travel device, so I can’t get us all back to Tacoma last night for Maria’s conversation with Kenny Semple at King’s Books. However, I do have access to a wondrous thing called the Internet, and if you’re reading this, then you do, too! So please enjoy Maria Semple’s interview with NPR’s Fresh Air’s Sam Briger.
