Mr. Chappell can be so self-effacing, that he might cringe at the heading of this post. I'm not even sure this is the correct place to post this, but luckily, I'm sure to hear about it if not.
Fred and Susan Chappell, are not only an attractive couple, and a very smart couple, but they are also super nice! As I get older, the quality of "nice" rises higher and higher in my esteem.
I was thinking of the thousand or so would-be writers that I come into contact each year, and always think that many could benefit greatly from events like Fred Chappell's talk and reading tonight. You could pay $500 for a writer's workshop, and still not get the quality, talent, and high caliber instruction that I was exposed to tonight.
These last few months we've had several inspiring authors talk about their research and writing and career, and more (see our website www.fountainheadbookstore.com). I am grateful, and humbled and awed to get to learn from these authors, as well as enjoy the fruits of their labors.
