Launching Lucy Pear
This time last week, I was preparing to venture out to Brooklyn for the launch of Anna Solomon’s new novel, Leaving Lucy Pear, at one of my favorite bookstores, BookCourt.
I knew that it would be a lovely evening, and I was right! I got to sneak in dinner beforehand with a pal who was also attending the reading and caught up with a number of familiar faces in the audience at the store.
Anna read beautifully, and her conversation with J. Courtney Sullivan was lively and laughter-filled. (And Anna’s young daughter asked excellent questions from the audience. An example: “Was the book hard to write?”)
Congratulations to Anna on the launch of this book, which is receiving some rave reviews!
If it’s a new month, it’s time for a new issue of The Practicing Writer. ICYMI, you’ll find the current issue right here.
