I might now be able to get a hold of you, but I am hoping that you can give me any information further, on if this event is sold out..?

It was a wonderful evening in Cary Hall. (Sorry you weren't there Len!) It was surreal to see Amanda in that genteel environment after our recent nights at the Paradise. The crowd was a mix of Lexingtonians, family members, friends & freaks. Amanda said that she had never been inside that building, which is where they hold the town meeting.

Amanda (dressed demurely in her Ampersand video dress) read her Forward to the book
Anthony read the chapter "Force Fed"
Amanda played "In My Mind" on ukulele
Special guest Jason Webley(!) joined her for "Icarus"

Intermission

Amanda & Neil did "Makin' Whoopie"
Neil read a section of "The Ocean at the End of the Lane"
Anthony read the "Swamp" chapter
Amanda played "Creep"
And we all stood in a long and friendly line to get our books signed.

It was rather like a Prairie Home Companion and I think the Lexington audience enjoyed a taste of our world. I'm glad I got to meet Anthony and hear his reading, which was very moving.

It was a wonderful evening in Cary Hall. (Sorry you weren't there Len!) ...

Thanks for the review.

I suspect Amanda wore that dress for the hometown crowd (she groks Lexington), and to keep the focus on Anthony. 

Being with my Dad (he's a few weeks shy of 88), two of his grandkids, and their Dad was more important.

One way to buy Anthony's book, with Amanda's forward:

Anthony is looking for creative feedbook on both his books
Lunatic Heroes and Beloved Demons.
Asking you to celebrate his art,
by being creative with words yourself.
