A BIG "THANK YOU" to Malaprop's Bookstore in Asheville, NC, and to www.towleroad.com! Tonight, I gave a reading at a wonderful independent bookstore in Asheville: Malaprop's! A few months ago, when traveling through this area with my daughter, I gave them a postcard of the book and said "You might be interested in this book." Up to this time, my books were always hiding in the religious section of this book store.
A few weeks later, we worked out a date and time for a reading! Tonight, over 50 people showed up for the reading and book signing. After the reading, there were some great questions and responses about raising children, living honestly and openly, and questions of faith. My daughter Adrianne and partner Dean were there to answer and respond to questions as well...a family affair.
Then tonight, I found out that www.towleroad.com picked up on the article in the Asheville Citizen-Times from Sat., Jan. 27th! Though they spelled my name, "Brian Webb-Mitchell," it is clear, once you hit the link it was about the book.
Thank you, Malaprop's! Thank you, Towleroad! Let's continue to talk about good parenting, gay and straight alike!
Um, rapper Ja Rule just called 50 Cent a “power bottom” in a floridly homophobic rant - So insulting! So... specific.
