New York Friends! Come to Ithaca for two Awesome Author Events for Women's Work!
July 9, 2014
I am so excited to be heading to Ithaca, NY, July 25-28. I'll be at the Ithaca Artists' Market (same location as the Farmers' Market) on Friday July 25 from 2-8pm. Over 85 artists will be there to show their talents in painting, writing, carving, etc.! Come to booth 19 to meet me and we can talk about the themes and characters in my novel Women's Work. I'll be sharing space with my good friend Michele Steffy, the extremely talented photographer. Her images of the Finger Lakes region is sure to inspire and amaze you.
The next day I am doing a book reading and Q&A at Buffalo Street Books in the DeWitt Mall in downtown Ithaca! I'll be there from 3-4pm, so come down to join the conversation!
This is an especially important trip for me, because it will be the first time I've ever been away from my children for more than 24 hours. I know, that sounds crazy considering my oldest daughter is almost 8 years old! What can I say? I just really like my kids.
If there was one place on Earth that could draw me away from my awesome brood, it is Ithaca. I lived there for nearly 10 years and made some of my favorite friends there. Within minutes of announcing this trip on Facebook, I had 4 offers to stay at people's houses -- people I haven't seen in a LONG time. This makes me happy.
So, although I will be missing the smiles and cuddles of my three little beauties for a whole weekend, I will be hanging out with some of the greatest people in one of the greatest towns. If you live anywhere around the Finger Lakes, please come down to Ithaca July 25th or 26th! I would love to meet you.
