Anderson has a number of book signings in the next few weeks. If you attend one, please share your experience here.

I was at the signing at Olsson's Bookstore in Arlington, VA last night. Cooper was refreshingly genuine both in his talk and at the signing. He greeted each person in line by name (provided by the publicist) and chatted away casually. I had picked up a Graham Greene novel while I was waiting for my turn at the signing table and he engaged me in a few seconds of conversation about Greene. It was nice to see someone who seemed to genuinely appreciate his reading audience instead of appearing bothered or too self-absorbed to care.

Three hundred fans attended the Arlington, VA book signing. If you plan on attending any event, get a ticket to secure your place in line. I was 20th in line and trust me, the anticipation of meeting him is intense! He's very genuine and friendly. He was smiling and happy. He personalizes books and chats with you for a few seconds. What a great gift to give for Father's Day to show Dad his importance in your life. This powerful and healing book is also a great one to send to troops overseas.

Just Google: Anderson Cooper book signing 2006. He's touring the country this summer. I hope you meet him. He's very brave to share his personal issues. He's a great example for all to show you can be vulnerable and strong at the same time.

My daughter and I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday in Metairie, La. We were near the end of the line, and Mr. Cooper's signature is illegible. He started out personalizing, but because of the number of people, was forced to just sign his name. If you go, go early.

I attended Mr.Cooper's book signing in New Orleans. He was greeted with a standing ovation and cheers from the grateful people who are "walking the walk" in New Orleans. He promised not to let us be forgotten. I believe he will do so, but this country's 30 second attention span is hard to overcome. We will fight the good fight and bring this city back! New Orleans has a right to exist. I at least got to say thank you to Mr.Cooper for showing the world what happened here.
