ACL, Day 2: Sold Out

The second day of ACL was a watershed for sales at the BC booth. As soon as our replacement stock of books arrived, they were sold, especially Looking at Latin and Catullus Love Poems (workbook AND teacher's manual). CD sales are anticipated to be brisk today in the wake of last night's performance by Sound Inventions, with Old MacDonald (MacDonald Rustica) bringing down the house. The President's reception that followed was well-attended by BC authors, staff, and, er, groupies, spilling into Saturday with an impromptu trip to 5th and Broadway in Nashville, the heart of the live music district. We talked classroom tech between doing the Texas Two-Step and have some new ideas on bringing Classics into the new millennium.

More tomorrow.
