Although AFH doesn't do so many events for grown ups these days, he still tends to go where he's invited (if the money is right), faces the direction he's asked to face and reads poems for the correct length of time. Sometimes he talks more than he poems. Sometimes he sings a song(ish) instead of talking. Sometimes he is funny. Sometimes he is serious. Sometimes he dances. Sometimes he shows pictures of his cats.
