This past week I attended two fantastic book events: Erika Robuck at Concord Bookstore on Sunday, September 16 and Junot Diaz at Brookline Booksmith on Wednesday, September 19.
Erika spoke about writing Hemingway’s Girl and answered a ton of questions from the audience. I’ve been following her on twitter for a while so it was great to meet her in person. Also met other tweeps Nicole Bernier and author Maryanne O’Hara [Cascade]. Very fun time.
If you haven’t been to a Junot Diaz reading, you must go. He did a reading for This is How You Lose Her at Brookline Booksmith at Coolidge Corner Theatre. He’s a riot. He answered a few questions, read a bit, answered a few more questions, read a bit more. Then he kissed EVERY person waiting in queue to meet him. That’s how you build a fan base and sell books!
