    We had a good time with King in good mood, nice sunny day, cool breeze, seeing old friends and easy going but orderly event..
    We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring
    will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

    There were a few members there. Me, barlow, EXPLORER, Lot guy, Roseannebarr & tippy4.

    It was a lot of fun. While Matt and Glen were stalking King, the rest of us met on the patio of a restaurant across the street from the bookstore.

    The new store is beautiful. The event went well. King was in a great mood. He was kissing babies and hugging old ladies.

    I have eleven pictures from the event a new friend shared on my Facebook page.

    The Family Book Shop in Deland FL ( https://www.facebook.com/TheFamilyBookShop ) held drawing where the winner would receive a book and ticket to the EOW Signing. Heather won the ticket and gave to her Mom (a longtime King reader and fan).

    Heather shared her pics with me. I am having trouble loading them to photobucket so can post here however if i figure it out will do.

    King did not do any signings for MrM. There are the flood of EoW signed books that were distributed during the massive book tour to promote that one. That makes MrM more desirable. Particularly for those that want a complete signed set of this trilogy.

    Who would care where/when King signed a MM? Heck, he might be walking out of the men's room at a RBR concert...
    King inscribed and dated (same date) all three of the trilogy last year for our Grand Prize winner...The winner didn't question the desirabilty.
