Book signing at Liberty Island last Friday, October 28
November 2, 2011
It was a great day to be at Liberty Island. The weather was perfect and there were a lot of visitors, all happy to be part of the 125th anniversary celebration. I met members of the Statue of Liberty Club, a club I have joined (I was sorry to miss the group photo!), Park Ranger Bill Maurer, who has been a great support, and other rangers, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Ladies Auxiliary, which has a tradition of honoring the Statue of Liberty every October 28, a NYC tour guide glad to learn more about the history behind the statue, and many other people. The concessionaire at Liberty Island and Ellis Island, Evelyn Hill, Inc., designed a beautiful poster for my “book signing” and set up a table for me near the entrance to the new gift pavilion. Because of my slow hand, I had actually signed the books in advance, but everyone was understanding and encouraging. It was a special day.
