Those with a particularly acute editorial eye will note that we were not only BERSHIRE–K missing–but Publishing Company instead of Publishing Group. I’m promised a corrected sign for next year, when we plan to have a larger booth. But at least you can see how our new booth banners–styled like Chinese scrolls by design intern Anna Myers–look. I hung the Autumn Festival lanterns given us two years ago by Ellen Wong of the Guangdong People’s Publishing House, and carried streamers of fake autumn leaves in my suitcase to keep to the New England autumn look you can see in the center banner. That’s a photograph taken from Knob Hill in Great Barrington, and the town itself is nestled in the middle.
