Things you may take for granted, like flushing toilets, electric lights, refrigeration and hot showers are things that the gypsy book artist must take into consideration all the time. Luckily, librarians like Judy Harvey Sahak was thoughtful enough to think about these things for us yesterday. She had a parking spot arranged for us when we got to Scripps Denison Library. Peter learned how to parallel park with a trailer, and when we were in, instantly a crowd gathered to see inside Paloma. I think the visiting parents enjoyed the wagon more than the prospective high school students! The books were shown to the librarians in Claremont Colleges, then they arranged for us to spend the night on the streets of the college! Security were very curious about the wagon too, and "checked" on us all evening. In the morning, we had passes to the gymnasium for showers! (Now that was WAY NICER than the sponge bath of the last 3 days). Two pics show us parked at Scripps.
On Sunday morning, we taught a book arts class at Otis Art Institute. Well, really they took a field trip to Paloma and we had 6 students and teacher inside the wagon! Peter talked, sang ukulele book arts songs and generally talked about the wonders of this penultimate art form, the book.
They were thoughtful enough to bring us drinks and muffins and scones!
