Thank you to all the readers who made it so that The Light We Lost popped back on to the USA Today bestseller list in back to back weeks! To me, stories are a way to connect, and I hope, particularly in disconnected times, people can find stories that touch them and make them feel seen and understood.
I came home tonight to the most incredible gift from Hello Sunshine! It’s a framed painting of The Light We Lost by Jane Mount (!!!). I’ve already replaced a poster in my office with this gorgeousness. Thank you to Reese Witherspoon for this wonderful gift and for choosing my book as the February 2018 pick for the Reese’s Book Club. I am so, so grateful. (I love the card, too, which is now hanging on our tree!)
Thank you to the folks at the JCC in Atlanta for a lovely event today. I so loved meeting everyone and chatting about secrets and dads and brunch and love. I also so loved being on stage with Sarah Blake!
I had such a wonderful day at the Books and Brunch event supporting the Assistance League of Chicagoland West, which helps supply winter clothes, food, and more to community members in need. Loved getting to meet and listen to Mary Kubica and Eileen Meyer, and to see some familiar faces from Andersons Bookshop, who were selling books at the event. Thank you to all 500 (!!) people who came.
