Village Books is a large independent bookstore in the historic district of Bellingham. Although it was a smaller crowd, the Q&A lasted even longer than at larger readings. There were a lot of questions about my book, about immigration out of and into Morocco–particularly in light of recent events in the Spanish presidios of Ceuta and Melilla.
