(reposted from my school blog)

I went to see/listen to Ursula K. Le Guin read some chapters from her book A Wizard of Earthsea this evening. I have to admit that when I learned that she was going to be reading in town I went all squealy and fangirl in the middle of the Bookstore. It was mildly embarrassing, but she’s my favorite author, so it’s understandable.
She didn’t read some of my favorite bits, but did choose three chapters that showed the flow of the story without giving away the end, which may not be surprising to some even if they have not read it, but it is such a satisfying ending.

I wanted to ask her about whether she has any of her social setups or societies (i.e. the androgynes on Karhide or the four-person “sedoretu” marriage from O) that she has thought of but not yet written about. I didn’t, but that’s okay. I left her a little note promising that I would send photos of the Mud Run and gushing all over the place thanking her for coming to read. The line was super long; I gave the note to one of “the keepers” as she called them. I didn’t want to waste anyone’s time, I didn’t want anything signed, all I wanted to do was chat with her but it really wasn’t the time or place.
