The launch for Curtsies & Conspiracies at Hicklebee’s in San Jose on Tuesday night went great! Thanks so much to everyone for coming out mid week on a school night, no less. Yesterday I had a school appearance in front of 200 6th-8th graders (eep!), which actually was a real pleasure. I got some great questions.
Tonight I fly to Seattle and here’s where you can find me:
Friday, Nov. 8, 7:00 PM ~ Third Place Book Company (17171 Bothell Way NE Lake Forest Park, WA) Talk, Q&A, and Signing
Saturday, Nov. 9, 2:00 PM ~ Queen Anne Books (1811 Queen Anne Avenue North Seattle, Washington 98109) Tea Party Event plus Talk, Q&A, and Signing
And now I must run around like a crazy thing getting last minute errands done and then pack.
See you in Seattle!
