My Brush with Greatness

 



  Share|

In 1995 I attended the American Booksellers Association Convention in Chicago. 
I was mainly there to man a booth, but I did get to attend one breakout session where
we would meet a "surprise guest" who was publishing a book that year. 

The "guest" turned out to be Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was publishing It Takes a Village. 
After the presentations, she stayed behind to chat with the ~50 of us.  She was very gracious,
never seemed to be in a hurry, and definitely connected with everyone she spoke to.  Every
time someone gave her a copy of their book, she would glance through it quickly, make some
comment about the book, and say, "Thank you.  I'll read this." 

I understand that she later wrote notes to those brave enough to give her their books,
and it was clear she actually did read all the books she was given.

While Bill's charisma enchants medium-to-large crowds, Hillary's is more powerful in
small groups or one-on-one.  When she was speaking to you, in a crowded room,
you felt like the two of you were the only people in that room.
