And The Mountains Echoed – Book Signing


, , , , , ,

It’s rare for me to attend book signings, so I was really excited to go to Khaled’s Hosseini’s book signing at the local Costco in San Francisco. I finished reading And The Mountains Echoed, but I just haven’t had time to write my review.

I never know what to say to authors who I admire.  My first inclination is to gush and say “I love your book!”  But c’mon, how original is that? He must hear that one all the time.  I could be all refined and say “The themes of memory and love are intertwined so wonderfully well that blah, blah, blah.”  That’s not me.   In the end, I merely said “It’s a pleasure to meet you. I really enjoy your writing.”


What do you say when you meet an author?
