The Book Launch/Persian Tea for "Harvest of Gold" by Tessa Afshar Monday at the Mark Twain House is Hartford was a huge success. Overflow seating in the auditorium to accommodate the largest crowd they ever have had -- more than 230 turned out for the venue's first-ever book launch! A wonderful night of celebration and support for Tessa, who also is the first Christian fiction writer to have an event sponsored at the Mark Twain House. The bookstore sold out of her books and God did a loaves and fishes thing to keep the Persian tea and delicious refreshments flowing throughout the evening.
