Fumky Fan Club

While signing books at Ohioanna last Saturday, a woman came up and proffered an aging piece of manila paper which turned out to be the charter of sorts of a Funky Winkerbean fan club from 1985. The woman was the founder, president, recruiter and basically chief everything of this fine organization. I’d like to publicly thank her for not only hanging onto this piece of Funky history, but also for her kindness in bringing it to the event to show me. It was very cool and the kind of thing that’s makes going to these book signing events so enjoyable. That’s definitely one for the books.
