I had a book signing event in April of this year, at a bookstore in Atlanta. There were roughly 50 people in the audience.
I had been reading snippets from my book for a while, and then I opened the floor to questions.

My first book, Permanent Happiness, is about finding and maintaining inner personal peace, which eventually translates into community peace.
