Tony Grafton was an absolutely gracious star about signing my book and saying hello to me. I said who I was a student of and he remembered her fondly and enthusiastically. It's sad that I don't have a field, because he asked. I waved to my book history prof from across the room and he later said that he'd introduced me to Grafton as "a refugee from the history department" in that moment. They've been nice to me but it's true: I am not a born storyteller and I love some of the classes I've been able to take in other departments (book history, theory).
