On Saturday evening I got together with my friend Jerome in Berkeley at a pub called Barclay's, a place I'd never been. Lots of good beer on tap.

So after hitting the pub, Jerome and I went over to another part of town to attend a booksigning. We were just over an hour early, but they hadn't even set up yet.

Here I am at Cody's Books in Berkeley looking like a squirrel with a mouth of nuts, but I'm actually saying something along the lines of, "I want this poster!"

Well, because Cody's wasn't too busy, we figured we had some time to kill before things started at the bookstore.

So we walked around until we found another bar, the Cafe Rouge.

We went back to Cody's after the bar. Guess who we met before his reading. :D

We talked to him a little. He is very friendly and approachable. Then he had to an interview with the local UC Berkeley student radio station.

After he came inside, we talked to him some more and got another pic with him.

We sat in the front row. Joe read from Chapter 10 of Heart Shaped Box and then did a Q&A.

Then we walked and talked with him over to the other part of the store where he was going to do the signing.

Here he is signing one of Jerome's books. Then he signed mine.

Ok, so we weren't just the first ones in line. We went and put the books in the car and came back in, so we were also the last ones in line.

We sweet talked a nice lady at the bookstore into giving us their two promotional standalone posters. Joe was nice enough to sign them for us. :)

Thanks, Joe and Barry. Glad you like them.



I resisted the urge to post the other photos from the bars. I didn't know if anyone else around here was interested in quality beer. LOL

I went with Patrick and had a great time. Joe was so pleasant. It was a bit amusing when he was reading as Cody's left the door open and an Amtrack train loudly went by. Joe paused for the train to pass, and when he began to read again-another train in the opposite direction came.
Looks like Patrick posted most of the relevant photos. Here is an inscription I received:

We are pretty lucky living in Northern California. It's kind of a microbewers heaven here. We don't get as many author tours as the East Coast. :(
