Have met quite a few...

A highlight was hanging out with Dany Laferrière, after he invited me to Toronto Authors Fest private late-night shindig.

He asked what my date & i would be swilling. Was gin. A 40-ouncer, mix and ice in a bucket arrived at our table as if by magic.

Was an evening of lore...

I have met many authors of non-fiction work, but I suppose most people who have been to university will have, as professors often publish books as well as journals. I do not recall ever meeting an author of fiction, though I would love to meet Barbara Nadel and wish I could have met Terry Pratchett.
