Readers' Books shop owner Andy Weinberger was very pleased with the turn out for Catherine Sevenau's book launch. Sevenau's writing echoed some of the 1960's, Weinberger also recalled that time.

Our music (we thought) contained all the truth we'd ever need. You might not know where things were headed, but still the times they were a-changin', as Bob Dylan
