In response to all your questions about how the book signing went on Saturday, it was fabulous!
The owners of The Abbey Catholic Book and Gift Store in Scarborough, Maine – Yvonne Johnson and her daughters Alexandra and Samantha, along with Yvonne’s husband, Carl went way and above the call of duty. They made the first signing flow so smoothly! Their tremendous personalized effort enabled a pleasant time for so many people. We talked with people we hadn’t seen in MANY years! One couple and their young son rented a car to be there. A mother and daughter came down from Worcester! Our Assumption friend flew up from Georgia to be there! My boss from the drug store I worked at in high school was there with his wife. The “girl” who used to babysit for me came. Erin’s friend and her family visited. Two “girls” I went to high school with came by. And, of course, friends and family were there to support us. We met many new people, especially through Erin’s cousin, Fr. Kevin. Everyone commented on being grateful that Erin’s messages and story are now being shared with so many.
Please support The Abbey. They are so hospitable and can help you find anything you’re looking for! And you can’t find more pleasant and genuine people.
Then we had some “mini private signings” in Yarmouth, Freeport, and Portland over the rest of the weekend.
It was physically and emotionally exhausting and we’re just recovering now, but it was a powerful weekend!
Thanks for all who supported us — especially for The Abbey who warmly opened their shop for Erin’s words to be shared.
