How can I describe how much FUN our readings are?? The San Francisco readings were amazing–and the Book Soup event was just spectacular–our readers–Zach, Cecil, Cindy, Gigi and Philip really outdid themselves. It was the best sort of literary event–warm, funny, smart, raunchy, moving, spontaneous. Lots of good feeling all around. Our readings bring the book to life, and I am so sad to have missed the Borders reading tonight. (My six-month old had a bad reaction to her shots and was feverish and throwing up all day and night so I just could not bear to leave her.) But this book is my baby too!
New York is going to be excellent (Karen Robinovitz! Simon Doonan! Andrew Solomon! Elizabeth Spiers! just to name a few of our fab contributors who will be reading), and I behoove those of you in town to come to one of our events–they just keep getting better and better and don’t disappoint. I was teary-eyed by the end of Wednesday’s reading–our writers have shared such a special part of their lives with us and people, it just does not get better than this. This is literature…live!!
Bring your main gals and main gays… we hope to see you soon!
