Danielle Trussoni at Powells.com
Danielle Trussoni, who was a second year when we arrived and who hosted the first official get-together of the 2001-2002 season, has an original essay posted at Powells.com called "Confessions of an American Bookstore Junkie." I didn't realize this, but she also has her book out, called Falling Through the Earth. I feel bad that I did not know this. But I also remember she won a grant that I'd hopefully applied for myself. And, dammit, perhaps if I'd won instead, I'd be the one with the original essay on Powells.com.
