Well, Tom Robbins is coming to the Highlands Ranch location of Tattered Cover soon to read from his new book, Tibetan Peach Pie. I don’t normally go to readings out at the Highlands Ranch location because it’s so far from me, but for Tom Robbins. I’m only concerned that I’ll break him.
After all, this is likely to be a pretty big event. That’s why they’re having it at Highlands Ranch instead of Colfax. I already had to get a numbered ticket for the signing line, which happens for the bigger events. I’ve also heard no posed photographs with Robbins and he’ll only personalize with names. There’ll just be too many people for anything else.
That being said, I wonder if Robbins will break when I walk up with the following:
– Skinny Legs and All
– Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
– Villa Incognito
– Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas
– Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates
– Another Roadside Attraction
– B Is for Beer
– Jitterbug Perfume
– Still Life With Woodpecker
– Tibetan Peach Pie
I’ve read them all except the new one, and I own them all (only Robbins I don’t have and haven’t read is Wild Ducks Flying Backward). Promising to sign and personalize with my name is great, but will Robbins do that for ten books? There’s going to be an immense line behind me. He might break and give up after a few. After all, he still has to have time and stamina left for the entire rest of the line.
We’ll see. I’m going, and I’m bringing these all. We’ll see if he signs them all, and if he personalizes them all. I certainly won’t blame him if he decides to limit a bit. He’s going to have a heck of a lot of books to sign.
