Book signing and Lunch

Went in to the city for a noon book signing by Nicola Griffith at the Seattle Mystery Bookshop .  She’s written Hild, about the abbess of Whitby Abbey in North Yorkshire.  Had a bit of a chance to talk to her.  She’s from Leeds, originally.  I spent a year at Leeds University. Turns out, we could have crossed paths as we both knew and frequented the same places in 1978.

I got into town early, so stopped for a hot chocolate at the Starbucks up from the bookstore and sketched inside.  The curve of the entrance interested me.

Then I drove to Georgetown for lunch, where I decided to try a newish place, the Brass Tacks.   I sketched while I waited for my lunch.  Interesting place.  The cutlery is in ball jars on the table.

More than a year after I first saw it and about a year after I read about it, the Compassion Wizard poster is still there.  Here is the Seattle Times article about it.
