Author is unrecognized by fan

My day job was being a children's librarian at a public library. 

I was amused when a boy and his mother brought one of my books to the Information Desk and asked ME if the book was any good. (It was one of my biographies.)  

I told them that it was well researched and it was a good read and that I knew the author, hoping that they would notice my name tag and make the connection, but no.

Sorry that opportunity for a little ego-boo got missed, but who looks at name tags, right? None of the patrons at the Jacksonville Public Library Art and Music Department ever noticed that my name had changed from Packard to Rhodes! Ah, well. Can you get yourself scheduled for an author talk in the Children's Department?
