fasmom, I hope you can find the right one. Maybe they will update the sites soon or you could email one of the bookstores and ask. Please report back if you are successful! :hope:

Best wishes to her for a successful tour and for compassionate audiences who will understand how difficult it must be to stand up and talk about Hunter--so bittersweet.

One thing I forgot to mention is that one cannot help but see her incredible love for Hunter. It comes through loud and clear. :smiliewithhearts:

Wonderful report Liz and ThirdArm! I'm so glad you were able to meet with Anita. What a wonderful experience! Your tour pictures make me long for another trip to SF soon Liz. :cool: I was on a food tour of North Beach a couple of years ago and happened to see Ferlinghetti standing outside of Caffe Trieste, another old hangout of the Beats. So he is, or at least was, out and about in North Beach.

She was very sweet and gracious as she signed my book, complimenting me on my Gonzo pin. I am thrilled to have had this opportunity to meet her. If she comes to your neck of the woods, do try to see her.

So if I go to Olsson's bookstore in DC on August 16th, I should mention that I sort of know (although I've never met) the woman with the Gonzo pin? :lol: (One hitch is that there are several Olsson's in DC. Owlfarmblog doesn't say which one she'll be at, and the Olsson's website doesn't mention that she's doing a signing at any of them.)


I, too, am entertaining "buying a ticket" on metro to get into DC...and I, too, noticed that there were 3 bookstores. If you get it figured out Fansmom, drop me a PM. I'm not one to venture into DC alone.

If on the slight chance I make it, I'll be sure to mention you Liz....and I've had the pleasure of riding with Liz in CA traffic. She is awesome at navigating the unnavigatiab

p.s. Thanks Liz & 3rdArm for the tour of SF. Great job.

Oh, I do wish she'd come to Orlando - after all, Jack Kerouac had a house here, so it wouldn't be far fetched. (The house is now a museum, btw)

:thanks!: Liz and Third Arm for sharing in the moment, the pictures are wonderful!!! I would so love to meet Anita and hope she'll eventually make it here to Atlanta for a signing.

I hope all those wanting to go to the DC signing make it! :hope:

Raisinette, don't give up on that hope. I don't think it is so farfetched.

DeepinDepp, good to see you! :wave: Hope she comes your way, too.

I enjoyed the photos and story a lot! :bounce: Through you, I get to experience pieces of life I would never be able to do on my own.

I don't think anyone has said, who is having the book signed in the photo? Is that one of our ONBC lovelies or an anonymous Hunter fan?

Are you kidding me?????? She doesn't look anything like the Captain Jack Sparrow Halloween costume photos I have seen before! I may need to take a second look at this.

Thought I'd add this tidbit to this thread. For NY area Zoners, Anita Thompson will be in NYC for a book signing this Friday, Oct 12th. Supposedly she will mention The Rum Diary. I'm curious what she'll have to say. Hope we can get a report from someone that can attend.
