Countdown to Pub Date

It's been an unbelievable week. First up was a photographic shoot with the New York Post at 3272 Decatur Avenue in the Bronx -- my Nana's house where I lived for five years after the death of my mother. The shoot was followed by an interview with Jane Ridley at The Post, who did an excellent job summing the issues. Included below is the hyperlink to her story as it appeared in The Post.

The Latest from Desperately Seeking Paris

Dear Friends,

Thanks to all who pre-ordered Veronicas' Grave. The outpouring of support and the praise lavished on the book has been most heart-warming. 

For those of you in and around the city, I wanted to let you know that in conjunction with the official publication on May 9th, when the book becomes available at booksellers nationwide, I will be at Barnes & Noble on East 86th Street (Lex- 3rd) Monday, May 16 at 7 PM.  

That evening I'll be discussing Veronica's Grave with Sande Boritz Berger the author of The Sweetness: A Novel, having to do with family secrets and survivor guilt after the Holocaust. 

It would be wonderful if you could join us.  And if you have not purchased a copy of Veronica's Grave, but intend to do so, perhaps you might hold off doing so until that evening. After all, it's what allows B & N to so generously host the author discussions and signings.
