Last time you laughed out loud?
“We just received a new picture book at the Book Store by the authors of Awkward Family Photos, titled Everything is Awkward. We were all laughing so hard that we were crying.”
Last great author you met in person?
“Working at the Lake Forest Book Store, I’ve been so lucky to meet many great authors by and attending various publisher-sponsored conferences. One of my favorite authors is Homer Hickam. He stopped by the store to sign books when he was touring for the release of Carrying Albert Home. I’m looking forward to seeing Cheryl Strayed (author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Wild) at a lecture sponsored by the Chicago Botanic Gardens.”
Last great meal you enjoyed?
“I love going to cooking classes at Froggy’s! I always learn new cooking tips from Chef Thierry LeFeuvre and the classes end with an amazing dinner. It’s the perfect night out.”
Last song you sang along to?
“I try not to sing out loud!”
Last time you treated yourself?
“When I drove my son out to Bozeman, Montana for school, we stopped in Schnee’s, a
great outdoor store and I bought three pairs of shoes. The best part—no sales tax in Montana.”
