Great presentation, Peggy. One that hits home.

When I show up for a book signing, I might say, "I'm the author," so the clerk will know what to do with me. But I never say, generally speaking, "I'm AN author," or "I'm a writer."

Academia is big on initiations, so with actual trumpets blowing, I was ushered onto the stage of PhDs. That made it real. So, am I a physicist doing a stint as a writer?

I think we need trumpets for First Books.
