Great connection story. My favorite, still, is when Audrey Niffenegger walked into your shop while Celeste was visiting. The Time Traveler's WIfe was one of her favorite books! That was the magic you are known, for, Mom.


Response from Florence:

I remember now. Celeste, away at Smith College in MA, visited
Chicago briefly and came into the store. In that tiny span of several minutes, in walks
Celeste’s favorite author (and mine), Audrey Niffenegger, of her favorite book, "The Time Traveler’s Wife." A frisson of excitement -- Celeste’s? Mine? Celeste approached the amiable Niffenegger for a brief conversation. Celeste has now just graduated from Smith College so I will give her my own signed copy of the book as a gift, and she can bring it to her new, exciting fifth-floor walk up in glamorous New York City.



Oh my goodness ... a fifth floor walk up in NYC. WHAT a treat. Celeste won't need to join a gym.
All she'll need to do is forget her keys once or twice ... or a letter she meant to mail ... or or or ...
The story of "That's MY book", is priceless. I'm betting on books, now and forever.
I was just at my 50 year reunion from NYU Bellevue Nursing School in NYC. The subject of worms and farming came up. Ha ha ... yeah, you wouldn't expect that as a topic for old NYC nurses ... but there it was.
What did I remember ... but a poem by EE CUMMINGS ... about my uncle Sol who was a failure in everything, including farming and raising chickens, but they "all cried like the Missouri when down went my uncle Sol and opened up a worm farm". Ha ha ... for a funny treat ... you could look it up.
I'm home now. I am so excited. I FOUND the poem in one of my BOOKS, and mailed it to my friend. Really ... there is nothing like a treasured book.
And and and ... a thought well put. "We all cried like the Missouri". Oy ... can't beat that.
Anyway dear sweet darling Florence ... it's treasures you have been giving people every day of your life.
