High Noon: Dining w/Patrick McManus

Put your hands together for blog buddy Cindy Hval, who writes on Facebook that she “is feeling all kinds of happy” because noted author/playwright Pat McManus bought her lunch (Tuesday). Seems McManus looked over her book proposal and pronounced it “brilliant, the best he’s ever seen!” And he sent along a glowing letter of introduction to make the rounds with her proposal as she goes in search of an agent.” Cindy’s compiling a book of love stories from the greatest generation (many of which you’ve read in Handle Extra and the Washington Voices). You can read her latest here: “Cupid’s Arrow Overtook Gunfire.”

Question: Who’s the most famous individual that you’ve eaten a meal with?
