I was honored to be chosen as one of the 2012 Ten Haute Authors by Colophon—Friends of the SMU Libraries.
My wife, Becky Meehan, her mother, Rev. Annette Meehan, and I had a wonderful evening at this year’s Tables of Content — a fundraiser benefiting the annual Grants Program supporting the purchase of books, periodicals, electronic resources, and other much-needed equipment and materials for all of the SMU libraries.
Each of the authors had a table in a lovely courtyard, serenaded by a string quartet. I met several amazing people including author PJ Hoover (be sure to check out some of her cool books HERE) and our table host, Dr. Ruben L.F. Habito, Professor of World Religions and Spirituality at Perkins School of Theology. It was an evening of riveting conversation. Even former First Lady, Laura Bush was in attendance (although I didn’t get to say hi).
Thanks to Director Amy Carver and Coordinator Cindy Ruppi for the honor and invitation. And a special thanks to Dr. Habito for being such a gracious host.
