While I was waiting at the reference desk at my local public library tonight for a librarian to finish with another customer, I picked up a book on the display in front of the reference desk: “Walking Across America.” I looked at the back cover to see if it said what the book was about and was surprised to read a blurb about a book about some woman named Jessamyn West who left California to go to Europe. When the librarian came back, I put the book down. I forgot the title of Jessamyn’s book by the time I got to the car. Whatever it is, it’s on my (long) reading list.
I met a Jessamyn this weekend when she was in town for some talks at Simmons College and BloggerCon.
