One of my all-time favourite books is Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight, a memoir of Alexandra Fuller's childhood in Zimbabwe. This is the only book I can recall reading where I really didn't want it to end; each night I wanted to keep reading and reading, but at the same time I also wanted to put it away so that I wouldn't reach the end so quickly. On May 14, Alexandra Fuller was at the Seattle Public Library to give a reading from her new book (The Legend of Colton H. Bryant), and I actually found about it in time to go see her! I even got to speak to her (heart pounding) as she signed a couple of books for me. The podcast of her talk will be posted here.
