Big Weekend for Subway Story

On Saturday I'll be celebrating Subway Story with an event at Hooray For Books in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia at 2pm. Join me for a reading, signing, and refreshments!

And this Sunday, Pete Hamill's wonderful review of Subway Story will be in the New York Times Book Section here. The article is great, and I'm honored and humbled by the kind words from such an amazing New York author.

The picture above accompanies the article, and is actually a self-portrait of my boyfriend Adam and I. I was painting this page as we were baking a wedding cake for a friend. (Incidentally, he and I will be carrying cake down to Virginia from Brooklyn for the Hooray for Books event.) I had such a delightful time when I was there last for The Secret Plan release party, I'm looking forward to returning and hope to see some familiar faces tomorrow!

Please come for books, and stay for cake!
