April Showers Bring May…

Georgia’s Kitchen events! (Oh, and flowers too. Lots and lots of flowers.) After hibernating all winter long, I’ve got some terrific new events lined up for May and I couldn’t be more excited. (The sunshine and warmer temps aren’t hurting either.)

Kicking things off is a dinner at Villa Borghese in Wappinger Falls, New York. Over a delicious Italian meal, I’ll be talking a bit about my experience writing Georgia’s Kitchen. The event cost includes a donation to the Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse in Dutchess County, a wonderful and vital organization that has helped countless children. Thanks to Laurie Milano for organizing the entire evening — she’s a force!

On May 14th at 2 pm, I’m thrilled to be joining a panel of fellow mother writers at the Millbrook Book Festival. That such a small town produces such a fabulous literary event is a testament to the festival’s many talented and hardworking organizers. This is my first year attending as an author, and I’m looking forward to joining Thelma Adams, Tina Traster, Liza Donnelly, Nina Shengold, Carol Maso, and my friend Daphne Uviller as we talk writing and motherhood (or something like that). There are great events planned all day long, so if you live in the area, and even if you don’t, come on by.

On May 26th, I’ll be at Flyleaf Books in beautiful Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I missed this amazing bookstore on my Tar Heel Tour last fall and I’m so glad to have the chance to visit now. I’ll be doing an author luncheon, so we’ll get to eat a great meal and dish about Georgia’s Kitchen, writing and food. Please spread the word to any friends in the area — this is going to be a lot of fun!
