Wynton Marsalis

Dreams Do Come True

January
9, 10

When I met Richard Peck, the very first thing he did was give me a hug. The second thing he did was to give me a copy of his new book. We visited over dinner at a small Italian place my sister, Maryann, and my brother-in-law, George, recommended. Good value and great company! Then, we walked back to Maryann and George’s place arm in arm. I felt like somebody special.

At the apartment, Richard signed his new book, A SEASON OF GIFTS. But, the biggest, best gift for me was yet to come. Richard said how much he liked our book and asked me to sign a copy for him. Imagine that? The very first book I ever signed for anyone, I signed for him.
