Literary Locale: The Time I Met David McCullough
Okay, so I almost met David McCullough. For those of you not in the know, this is David McCullough:
He's a historian that writes fabulous books. My favorite is probably Truman.
So how did I almost get to meet this great author? Well, my husband is an architect and a couple weeks ago, there was a huge architecture convention right here in DC. My husband told me that Mr. McCullough was going to be speaking so, of course, I invited myself to go see him speak! I braved architects He gave a great speech and afterwards, he was signing copies of his books (the ones that had something to do with architecture). The line was huge!
We waited for about a half-hour and we knew that Mr. McCullough only had a certain amount of time. We kept checking our watches and watched as the magic minute drew closer. And unfortunately, he stopped signing books about 5 people before we got to the front of the line. So close!!!! I was so sad!
Next time, Mr. McCullough, next time!
Where are you reading this week?
