At my college reunion this weekend, I read from ANFY28A37DP  as part of an Authors’ Panel I organized. I read “Day 25,” which was excerpted last summer in Spirituality & Health magazine’s “Books in Bloom” blog, which unfortunately isn’t online right now.

Four of my classmates, all wonderful writers, also read:

Valerie Frankel – author of the novel Four of a Kind  (2012), the memoir It’s Hard Not to Hate You (2011), Men Are Stupid . . . And They Like Big Boobs: A Woman’s Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery (2008) (co-authored with Joan Rivers), and 24 other books; articles in New York Times, Self, Allure, etc.
Stephanie Losee – co-author of Office Mate and You’ve Only Got Three Seconds; contributor to anthologies such as The Maternal is Political (2008) and Cup of Comfort for Writers, etc; articles in O, The Oprah Magazine, Fortune, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Post, The Huffington Post, San Francisco Magazine, NPR, etc.
Meg Houston Maker – writes in Palate Press: The Online Wine Magazine and Alimentum: The Literature of Food; blogs at Maker’s Table: A Journal of Food, Wine, and the Pleasures of the Table.

Jonathan Silverman  – author of Nine Choices: Johnny Cash and American Culture (2010). Read an interview about the book with Jonathan here.

Unfortunately, Harold Ambler (Don’t Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change (2011), and Ever True: The Story of Brown Crew (2009); articles in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, etc.; blogs at Talking About the Weather) had to bow out, because he had to soundcheck his band for a performance at dinner.

I suffer from literary envy now and then, but when a writer has a band, my envy goes off the scales!

Thanks to all our classmates who attended!
