I was thrilled to be asked by the prestigious New York Public Library to present the story behind my book. And I was completely surprised by the full-capacity house (you always think no one will show). I met some incredibly passionate readers of my book and blog, which was humbling and exciting at the same time. I gave an illustrated talk of my book, walking the audience through the story with visuals. You can view the lecture here, but for whatever reason, they cropped out the screen with visuals. Sorry! (You’ll have to scroll down to find my video. The still is of the woman who presented me, so don’t be confused.) We weren’t allowed to photograph any of the audience’s faces, which is why the photos are mostly of me.
