3 to 5 Questions for Authors:
In Which A Librarian asks a Talented Author a Small Number of Questions
We Skyped with Michael Hainey!!!
One of our awesome book groups, Books & Brewskis, got the chance to talk face-to-screen with author and Deputy Editor of GQ Magazine, Michael Hainey about his book, After Visiting Friends: A Son’s Story. In the book, Mr. Hainey describes his journey to find out the truth about the night his father, a newspaper man in Chicago, unexpectedly died. Hainey was just six-years-old at the time. If you like true stories of family and secrets and mysteries and healing, and books with heart (but not gushy heart), don’t miss it.
Honestly, I was so excited to talk with Mr. Hainey and so impressed at the thoughtfulness with which he answered our questions, my notes look like chicken scratch. So this isn’t a true 3 to 5 interview but I did manage to write the answer to one question he answered for us:
Q: If you were a Dewey Decimal number, what number would you be?
A: Why do I want to say 800s? [we informed him that poetry can be found in the 800s ]. That makes sense because I love poetry and I lived in the stacks when I was a kid!
