And the Very First Copy of The Joyful Bear goes to…

Juanita with Frankie

This is my brother’s best friend, Juanita. The two of them have been buddies for many years, and Hank serves as a guide for Juanita when they go out to restaurants and events. Technically, this is called, “the blind leading the blind.”

Juanita came up to Hank’s apartment to see me when I got to Columbus. Ever-curious and full of questions, she asked if she could feel my new book, which she cannot see. Little did she know that Frank Lloyd Bear was waiting for such a request. He jumped into her arms and gave her a big, furry bear hug, because you don’t need sight or hearing to appreciate a teddy bear.

To Frankie’s surprise, Juanita asked if she could buy a copy of The Joyful Bear. She planned to give it to her sighted friend, Jane, who helps her out a great deal. We are honored by her request, so Jane gets The Very First Copy, courtesy of Juanita.
