THE REMAINDERS

I apologize for the light blogging, but the Miami Book Fair is going on this weekend and the Remainders are in town. We played last night, and we had an eclectic group on stage. (I am using "eclectic" in the sense of "not all that good at music.") Shown in the photo below are (from left) James McBride, who just won the National Book Award for his novel The Good Lord Bird; Josh Hanagarne, an author who is also the World's Strongest Librarian; Brian Boitano, who won the men's singles figure skating Olympic gold medal in 1988; Scott Turow and (just barely visible) Amy Tan.
