|Wyn Kelley reads an extract.|
|Jennifer Baker reads; Mary Bercaw Edwards waits her turn.|
Whatever the cause, I hope the Museum will continue to include the Extracts in future years. Perhaps if they began the Extracts reading by having someone ring a bell or blow a bos'n's whistle from the podium, and announce what is about to take place, the audience will be more attentive.
After the Extracts, I went out to grab some lunch and take pictures around town. Gansevoort stayed on and later attended a sort of round-table discussion with the scholars and other serious fans, something I'm sorry to have missed and expect he will write about in the days to come.
