According to the Historical Society of Delaware's announcement of its April 25 Delawareana and Americana Book Auction, the sale will be conducted by Carol Coleman. I have not seen Carol on the podium since she regularly auctioneered for a gallery on US 40 west of Elkton, Md. The gallery was not my favorite, and the building is now gone. But Carol was a bright spot. She was always pleasant, efficient, and fair as an auctioneer and was the only touch of class in the place. I will enjoy seeing her again.
One question. Carol's trademark was a variety of broad-brimmed hats. Will she wear one for this sale?
