Signing Books At The Speed of High Speed Rail!

Book Signing at a bookstore "K" Street in Washington, D.C.

Book signing at a bookstore on “K” Street in Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C. is a city of monuments, museums, modern mass transit and taxis, embassies, fancy restaurants and nightclubs, lots of government buildings and government workers, and at least one really fabulous bistro, community gathering spot and bookstore.  That bookstore lies in the heart of our nation’s capital and is called Busboys & Poets.  And a really nice, neat, well-run, and fabulous place it is.  I know this because I and “Fast Trains” fellow writer Emy Louie got to spend almost a whole evening there in February of 2013.  We spent it enjoyably promoting, selling, and signing our book to eager bookstore patrons and lovers of high speed rail.  And I don’t mind saying, it was a blast!

Located at 5th and K Street along a scenic, shopping stretch of town, Busboys & Poets is one of those cool kind of spots where DC players and a sophisticate patrons seem to go to meet, see and be seen by others of this ilk.  It’s quite charming, too, and friendly, as is everyone who works at the eatery who did so much to make our book signing the success it was.  For yes, we sold lots of books.  And yes, we met lots of really nice people and power-players in the high speed rail industry at the book signing and at the US High Speed Rail Association DC Summit.

Emy and I can’t wait until the next book signing event.  Keep your eye on our blog here and we’ll let you know soon when it will be.

And a special thanks goes out to our illustrious agent Thomas Hart who set it all up for us and served as a moderator and key note speaker leading a lively discussion on the status of high speed rail in America followed by a challenging Q&A. Thomas is so connected and well respected in this whole Washington DC scene, not to mention Capitol Hill I feel honored to have him on our team.

Our book is filled with so many beautiful and historical photographs and illustrations as well as lots of fun stories about trains, railroads, and high speed trains to read about.

On the other hand, if you can attend, Emy Louie and I would love to meet you and personally sign your copy of Fast Trains. And, by special request we will be happy to sign copies and arrange for a special shipment directly to you. Drop me an email and I will make that happen.
