Jason’s booksigning event tonight was so fun. It was held in the very cool Goodwin Library in Farmington, NH. Tons of charm, and being that it’s probably the oldest and largest building in that small town, there was a ‘museum’ tucked away in a room downstairs. Tons of historical artifacts, natural collections, and stacks of old books and photographs were on display. We had a blast going through everything before his presentation, and I of course photographed some of the items that appealed me (read: I want them for my own collection).
