The Shootist gives a West on the brink of invention, self-identity, self-interest, and reputation power struggles. Glendon Swarthout reminds us that the antihero is not always a villain; sometimes he has a selfless spirit with self-worth from this life and the next.

This is the first time in years that I haven‘t been able to attend the Festival of Faith and Writing in Michigan. I‘m not gonna lie, I cried a little.
My husband, who presented and manned the exhibition table for his quarterly book review, took on my dork mantle and got a bunch of books signed (which I‘d pre-purchased when I thought I would be attending.) PLUS, he bought me surprises!!

Ahhh hope I remembered to tag everyone!!! Look at the track list for #reputation! SO EXCITED!!!
#hpchapteraday I like the contrast between Albus & Rose here. Rose is very conscious of #reputation while Albus is more willing just to get to know someone. This is what gives Albus a chance to het to know Scorpius-he doesn't prejudge him based on rumors, a great character trait. I'm also disappointed in Hermione's daughter being so judgmental of someone without giving them a chance. So how important is reputation to you in getting to know someone
Rose seems a little too sure of what her reputation will bring. Albus doesn't seem to realize he will be well known because of his father's reputation. I actually feel bad that Scorpius has a negative reputation and is so well aware of it. Is it fair that these children live under the shadow of their parent's #reputation? #hpchapteraday @Redjewel_7734
