“I understand you’re going to Lexington this time,” Admin says.

“Very excited about that,” says Spence. “I’ve never been to Kentucky before, no idea why. The store – Joseph-Beth Booksellers – is supposed to be great. I’m there Wednesday Sept. 11 at 7 PM.”

“Talking, signing, possibly reading from The Sound and the Furry?”

“And tossing out a few Chet and Bernie stress balls.”

“Are you going to tell the story about when you drowned?”

“Wasn’t planning to.”

“I think you should reconsider – based on a certain scene in The Sound and the Furry.”

“Hmm. Say no more.”

“Is it true you’ll be giving out Chet and Bernie stress balls?”

“In every city, possibly as Chet and Bernie pop quiz rewards.”

“How about a sample pop quiz question?”
