Huge, huge thanks to the ladies of the Junior League of Morristown, who hosted Lunch with the Authors yesterday afternoon! My To Be Read pile has now reached even more tottering proportions, thanks to the addition of novels by my fellow speakers, Linda Fairstein and Andrew Gross, both of whom gave staggeringly funny presentations. Speaking after both of them was one of those moments when I kick myself for not picking a nice, sensible nom de plume at the beginning of the alphabet, rather than sticking with my own name. After all those years at the end of the class list, you would think I would have learned my lesson.
For those in the New Jersey area who weren’t able to make it to the lunch and signing, Sages Pages of Madison, New Jersey now has a whopping great pile of signed copies of Pink Carnation, Crimson Rose, and Night Jasmine (when I get over-caffeinated, I just keep signing things. Fortunately, they stopped me before I could start signing furniture. Or people.). The bookstore is worth stopping by even if you already have signed copies of the entire oeuvre, just because it’s one of those amazing independent bookstores that serves as purveyor of books and cozy social space all in one.
