Dear Fellow Story-Lovers,
I am here with gratitude and so much news (including wonderful book club news with Emily Giffin’s Book Club, and you can join us!).
But first, let’s talk about Thanksgiving and how in the world did the earth keep spinning and it is now November? This year, these past years, have felt like such a blur. And right before the book was released the most glorious thing happened — my daughter had her second baby girl, born on her three-year-old’s birthday. There is nothing like a new baby to bring everything into perspective, the absolute wonder and miracle of new life.
Then off on the road, I went — I saw so many of you, and I could not be happier about that. From Chicago to Atlanta you showed up for this story and for each other (because I’ve seen it over and over — best friends are made at book events).
Here are some of the things that have kept me company on the road.
~My Friends and Fiction pals, not only the authors but the community. ~Audiobooks. One of my favorite: Circe by Madeline Miller ~Friends who show up at events, let me crash with them and talk me through the long drives! ~Podcasts! One of my favorites: Tell Me Something True with Laura McKowen.
Do you still want signed book copies? (What a perfect gift, I’d say) — Click HERE for a few choices.
Below you’ll find loads of news, a few essays I wrote about fairy tales, magic, and wardrobes. Enjoy!
All Love, always, —Patti
