BookPeople signing pics and free upcoming meetings

As promised, here are a few shots of our reading on Friday at BookPeople below. I'll load up the rest on Flickr tomorrow and you can scroll through to your heart's delight!

It was so great to see so many supportive and warm faces, both familiar and new. The evening was hosted by actress Laura Lane, who did an amazing job guiding the flow of the evening and directing questions. Good friend Izzy Rose was also celebrating the launch of her book, The Package Deal, and nicely represented the stepmom's point of view, since Carol was away at a longstanding painting workshop in Sedona.

I tried to move mountains to have her be there, but alas, in the end, we just both had to accept that she couldn't. A bittersweet celebration, in some ways. This is what she was doing!
