Mark Shurtleff's Book Signing

My daughter accompanied me

Mark Shurtleff and myself

Here are some pictures that I took at Mark Shurtleff's book signing on Tuesday, November 3, 2009. I think the book signing went very well. I have only had his book for a few days and I'm only into it about 120 pages, but I LOVE IT!

Many more friends were there, but I didn't get a picture with everyone. I think Nichole took some pictures, but I haven't seen those yet.

Connie, you were wonderful tonight! I'm sorry I didn't get to say hello.

Your essay was beautiful and you did a wonderful job sharing it. ((hugs))

Thanks Ali. I saw you, but didn't get a chance to say hello. Thanks for your support. My daughter needed to get home to her young children so we ducked out a little early.

You did a fabulous job reading and writing your essay. I was so proud. And yes, I did take some pictures. I'll forward them to you in a bit.

You were great! You read it so well, and I could tell people were touched. Several were nodding their heads as you read the part about Moroni.

We were so proud we were busting our buttons! :)
