You Meet the Most Interesting People...

After Tomie's presentation and autographing at the Boston Book Festival, we ate lunch with Sherry Litwack at the Copley Plaza Hotel across the street from many of the festival's activities.

Anthony (Tony) Tjan, his wife, Laura, and their oldest daughter stopped to say hello and introduce themselves. (They had attended Tomie's presentation.) They're lovely people, and it was nice that they stopped. (I didn't think to pull out my camera for a photo op until they had left.) Tony was scheduled to speak in the afternoon on "Happiness and Success."

I learned later that Tony Tjan is an entrepreneur, and CEO of Cue Ball. That brought to mind Guy Kawasaki ("former chief evangelist of Apple") of Garage Technology Ventures ( who wrote a book called HOW TO DRIVE YOUR COMPETITION CRAZY in the mid-1990s. Guy Kawasaki got permission to put Tomie's THE KNIGHT AND THE DRAGON in his book in its entirety. It seemed to us to be an out-of-the-box idea.

But, back to Tony Tjan. I've placed a link to his Cue Ball profile because the drawings on the right side are amusing and interesting.
