Signing and Discussion, Saturday, Feb. 5, New Orleans

If you’re in New Orleans this Saturday, come join me at Garden District Books for the paperback release of Letter to My Daughter, 11:30-1:00. Krispy Kreme Donuts for the first dozen people!

Random House Reader’s Circle

Here’s a piece on the Random House Reader’s Circle site, for the release of the paperback edition of my book today: Writing from a Woman’s Point of View.

Pat Conroy at Garden District Books

And speaking of the Garden District Book Shop, I had the pleasure of meeting Pat Conroy there a couple of nights ago. He gave a wonderfully entertaining talk to a big crowd to introduce his new book “My Reading Life” (which I’ve been reading and enjoying).

When I thanked him for blurbing my book, he explained that he was just a “blurb slut.” I said I would pretend I didn’t hear that . . .

Paperback Release

The first event for the paperback release of Letter to My Daughter will be a signing/discussion at Garden District Book Shop in New Orleans.

When: Saturday, February 5, 11:30-1:00

Here’s the link to the store (one of my favorite bookshops in N.O.). Hope to see you there. I’ll bring the donuts.

Paperback Edition Coming Soon!

Happy New Year from New Orleans.

I’m looking forward to the release of the paperback edition of Letter to My Daughter on January 25, 2011. The folks at Ballantine have done a nice job of preparing the paperback. It comes with a new cover, an author Q&A, and a Reader’s Guide. Also a free gift of chocolate that pops up when you open it. (Okay, the last one’s not true. But it is a nice edition.)

I’ll be doing some readings and events around Louisiana at the end of January and the beginning of February. I’ll post details here as they’re available.
