Many hands making light work!

A Reliable WifeFriday morning, the entire Algonquin staff in Chapel Hill worked together to get 350 packages of A Reliable Wife (and a fleece blanket to read it under) out to bookstores and booksellers across the country. We wanted to make sure they had a chance to read the book in paperback before it goes on sale on January 5.

The Algonquin elves stacked, taped, stamped and tied every package–and we got them out the door before Friday’s storm hit!

Thank you Algonkians for all of your help!

The more things change . . . I remember doing this with Ellen Foster and Raney back in the 80s. Good luck, y’all! And a salute to Scholey Pitcher — can still see him puffing his pipe back in those days!
