RJ Julia Books, February 7, Madison, CT: An iconic bookstore in Madison where my life-long friend and soul sister Donna (she’s in the book!) lives. We also attended a Jodi Picoult reading here (one of my favorite authors) so hallowed ground.


Oakland Public Library, February 23:  Oakland, NJ, is where we first lived when my father got custody of me, my brother, and sister. The chapters, “The Golden Years” and “Richest Christmas” take place here, so this was an emotional one!
