So the big excitement for this event was the news coverage. Turns out that the anchor for Channel 8, the local ABC affiliate, showed up along with a camera crew and did a little spot on the event, including an incredibly eloquent interview. It aired that night on the 11:00 news. Check out the edited version:

The event went great otherwise with lots of interest from a variety of people. Special thanks to Galen, Amanda, Casco Bay Books and, of course, Tanja for help before, during and after the event.

Thanks also to everyone who showed up and everyone who was recorded.
