The Farewell Tour came to a tearful close Saturday night at The Poisoned Pen. Many people came together to say good-bye to their favorite librarian/ book blogger, Lesa Holstine, who has a new position in Evansville, Indiana.
Balloons danced in mid-air and tables groaned with all sorts of mouth-watering treats (including a fabulous cake courtesy of author Louise Penny), but the main focus of everyone's attention was Lesa. None of us wanted to let her go.

While conversation flowed and cameras flashed, Poisoned Pen Pet, Odin, was a well-mannered host-- greeting everyone and finding out just which ones of us were the best at giving scratches.

Even though we know we can keep in touch with Lesa through email and her wonderful blog, Lesa's Book Critiques, it just won't be the same without seeing her smiling face when I go to author signings at the Poisoned Pen. (Although I am looking forward to her blog post describing her cross country car trip to Indiana with her mother and five cats!)
Evansville, Indiana is one very, very lucky place to have garnered such a talented librarian.
Your friends in Arizona are going to miss you fiercely, Lesa!
