The Birth of a Book, Enter Eating Wildly 2

Eating Wildly at the Corner Bookstore

Happy Publication Day! Last night was the first NYC event for Eating Wildly, and we had a full house at the Corner Bookstore on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. What an amazing night as friends and neighbors came to hear me give a brief reading from the book and a foraging slideshow presentation.

I was all aglow from the high of sharing the book—and because I was simply honored to be on Huffington Post’s “9 Contemporary Authors You Should Be Reading” list and Food Tanks’ Summer Reading List.

Highlights for me included seeing

*this James Beard award-winning investigative food writer and her amazing book

*this powerhouse poet

*this author who’s encouraging us to face our fears

*this writer who has become a compassionate voice for single women

*this author with one of the best-memoir titles out there

*this legendary children’s book author

*this other legendary children’s book author

* this food book author who divides her time between Paris & NYC

*this city naturalist and his love for wildflowers

Upcoming NYC & CT Readings

We are now in that all-important 1st sales week, which is rather like the opening weekend for a film, ie, it’s Eating Wildly’s best chance of becoming a best-seller. If you cannot make it to a reading, would you please consider ordering Eating Wildly on AmazoniTunesIndieBound, or on your Kindle or Nook? Many thanks.
