STATUS: Finally, after two weeks, things are easing up and soon I will be able to share all kinds of good news…
What’s playing on the iPod right now? RAINY NIGHT IN GEORGIA by Brook Benton
I think it’s good to take a few breaks from the agency agreement blogs and mainly because I just had to share this story.
My author Jennifer O’Connell was doing an event to promote the Judy Blume Antho this past weekend. She thought it a bit odd that there was a person dressed in a baseball cap and sunglasses in the back row but didn’t dwell too much on it.
She had a great time talking about Judy Blume moments and about the essays. At the end of her author talk, the ball-capped person approached her and whipped off the cap and sunglasses to reveal, and I’m sure you could see it coming from a mile away, that she was none other than Judy Blume herself.
She jokingly commented that she thought she’d have to be dead first before getting a tribute like this.
But this story isn’t even the coolest part. Judy is so delighted with Jennifer and the anthology that she has joined in the chat at the B&N bookclub site. It’s going on right now and if you ever wanted a chance to talk with Judy Blume, then click here.
I’m only jealous that I didn’t get to meet the legend in person myself! I’m off to join the chat…
