I'm a lifelong library devotee. This was an honor!
Her questions were so thoughtful and as I got emotional answering some of them, she held me up with such grace. What a pro. Thank you, Lois!
So shocked and honored and proud. Here's the live footage of me and my in-house publicist and manager receiving the news. Thank you Georgia Writers Association!
bookstore1 in Sarasota, FL / Monday 4/5/21 @ 5 PM
It's been a whirlwind of a week. The Savannah Book Festival was a true joy – star treatment, girlfriends in tow and the wonderful Jonathan Rabb. Then onto gorgeous Orange County where I got to meet terrific fellow authors and kind readers. Then, Disney with the fam.
Do I feel like I've been run over by a mac truck? Yes. Was it worth it? Also yes.
There are so many reasons why yesterday's reading at Thank You Books was special:
1. 4 members of our "heart family" as Ari has coined it drove and explored the city with us: Sarah Baldauf and Chris Fickes #keepinitbubbly
2. Got to hang with Barcley Roedder Gerndt, Caroline Springfield and Daphne Dunn Williams – friends for years and years who I wish I saw more.
2. Haddasah of Birmingham with Mindy Cohen and Jennifer Cordover sponsored the event and my fellow Jewess love was electric.
3. Kristen Iskandrian, co-owner of the store and beautiful author of Motherest was first introduced to me by 2 of my favorite people of all time Damian Fallon and Kathryn Belgiorno making it a circle of life moment that felt pretty damn good.
Thank you to everyone who came out!
So amazed to be in such tremendous company.
Thank you Atlanta Journal Constitution!
