Tremendous Reception for Library in Llano, Texas!!!

 Gene gives a book to an appreciative Llano Tea Party member.

The room early on.

Well, we knocked it out of the park tonight with the Libertarian Global Library and Book Exchange at the Llano Tea Party event.  I passed out just under twenty copies of "The Kingdom Of God Is Within You," by Leo Tolstoy, along with fifty fliers for the Libertarian School concept.  About six separate ladies through the evening expressed that they had been wanting to start a "book club," but they just never got around to verbalizing it yet and considered our activities would get them talking along those lines.  Two were retired school teachers excited about our work, so I don't think we've heard the last of this interaction.

There were about 125 to 170 people present, with eighteen candidates, including a sitting Texas Supreme Court Judge, who I think got a book, as I remember.  They snapped those free books up like they were free Elvis autographs.

Thanks to the donor who made it possible for the books to be passed out tonight.  We may have just seen the seminal moments of a genuine revolution.
