Nice little write-up this morning in Leah Garchik’s column in the San Francisco Chronicle:
[A reader] was off to Dagmar and Ray Dolby’s book party celebrating the publication of “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys,” co-edited by their son, writer Tom Dolby, and Melissa de la Cruz. Every Dolby reveler she told about the Truman Project was interested and curious. “What a city this is,” she said of the mix.
Another guest of the Dolbys described the party as gay in every way. She overheard Dagmar Dolby telling someone who’d complimented her on her red Proenza Schouler jacket that it is a “great advantage to have a gay son who picks out your clothes!”
Ha! I feel like I know next to NOTHING about fashion. But, oh well. (Sorry, Mom, I just thought the Proenza Schouler looked good on you.)
As Mel wrote, the SF bookstore people were fantastic, particularly Mike Barnard at Rakestraw who catered a party for us, made Cosmos, AND raised money for the Trevor Project. Fun night. And we loved the royal treatment that we got from Books, Inc. and Book Passage (including free gifts for us!).
Also, check out the Shutterfly Galleries by photographer Drew Altizer of our two nights of book events last week, the party and the first reading. Nothing like a photographer who makes everyone look good!
