If you cannot attend our tribute to Carla on Sunday, it will be livestreamed by beNOW.tv on our Politics and Prose website, www.politics-prose.com, starting at 1 p.m. This is an appropriate first livestreamed event with our new partner, and the beginning of what we hope will be a long relationship. BeNow.tv's founder and president Brian Gruber, a former C-SPAN executive and FORA.tv founder, says, "Carla was a warm, funny and generous partner and a big booster of beNOW.tv's plans to automate and livestream the production of author events. My memories of Carla holding court in front of the store - talking about books, authors, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. - will always represent to me the pinnacle of smart and passionate independent bookselling." --Barbara Meade
