Touring with Terry – The Irene Tour – South Hadley, MA – Tuesday

Our electronics are driving us crazy! Terry in a foul mood after several attempts to send e-mails. Our hotel claimed to have WiFi in every room AND the parking lot, but not in OUR room, as it turns out. T can’t even make a phone call from our room on his phone.

Then we chose to take the scenic route to Hadley. Well, I enjoyed looking at all the older homes in Albany but I’m afraid the charm was lost on him. We did finally get out of town and on our way through the Berkshires. Lots of little towns, no autumn color to speak of. Probably not our brightest decision.

But eventually we found our way to our lovely abode for the night, the Ivory Creek Bed & Breakfast.

A very easy drive to South Hadley and the Odyssey Bookshop. We met Robert Reddick, author of The Red Wolf Conspiracy and The Rats of the Ruling Sea (one of the best titles ever), for dinner at Food 101, right next door to the bookshop. Great food! Rob is very charming and we had a great time getting to know one another. He guided us to the Hooker Auditorium on the Mt. Holyoke campus where the reading and signing took place.

Another good crowd with some familiar faces from last night. Joan has a terrific bookstore and she and Sydney hauled a lot of books over to the campus for the event. Thank you!

This dear family waited until almost the end to have their books signed. Sorry the photo is so blurry. Matt, Mindy, Connor and Hunter.

Well, that was our last signing. The Irene Tour is over. Tomorrow we head to New York City to meet with the powers that be to discuss the future. Stay tuned!
