Her name was Sandy and she was the only other person in the room.
This was the Mountainside Public Library on Saturday where the kind folks who run the library has scheduled a reading for me.
They had placed a large poster in the doorway announcing my visit, and displayed copies of the two Frank Nagler mysteries they had in their collection, “The Swamps of Jersey,” and “A Game Called Dead.”
Thanks to the librarians for accepting a copy of the third Frank Nagler book, “The Weight of Living.”
It is hard to predict to who shows up at such readings for little known authors. I have been at some when friends and family of a local author flood the room. I have been at others when curious readers arrive, and at others when no one arrives.
But on Saturday it was Sandy.
And what privilege it was.
