Just got home from a post-reading chocolate fest at Max Brenner's with Lauren Sandler, Nona W-A, and Marco. I think I'm going to be up all night. I highly recommend ordering mass quantities of chocolate fondue after you read. Assuming you don't have to be anywhere early the next morning. Is there such thing as a chocolate hangover? I guess I'll soon find out.
(Thank you, Kelley McMasters and KGB bar, for organizing the reading tonight, and thank you, Sassy girls Kara Jesella and Marisa Meltzer, for your fabulous book! And big shout out to Lauren and Nona for coming! Grandma Pearl: this reading was dedicated to YOU.)
