Signatures? :-k
The only thing I appreciate in regards to, is the signature on a check. :DANCE:
Especially when they are in very large dollar amounts.... :y:

I don't care much about autographs but I wouldn't say no to (vintage) pictures/posters of Debbie Harry and Ali MacGraw.

Nice score!

I went. Read a lot of his work since much of it is centered in southern Utah. He is pretty knowledgeable about geology and the history of the ancients but brings in the adventure of being in those places into his writing. His style is very personal, in your face, drawing much on what's with in. He's also crazy. If half of what he writes about doing is half true, I would never backpack with him.

The event had maybe 50 attendees. Craig talked for an hour about his 5 years of research for the new book, most done on location from Alaska to Florida. Clovis folks seemed partial to Florida. The talk was interesting, funny, thought provoking. He's brought along a cat skull from the time period. Predators were pretty large at the time.

Afterwards he did a book signing. Didn't rush through it. We had a bit of a conversation. I'd never been to one of these, so I don't have anything to compare it to. But I enjoyed it.
