Ocean Grill - where I had lunch with Julia Hoban
*Next up was a real treat for me! Willow by Julia Hoban is one of my all time favorite books. I won a marked up Willow at an auction last year and I've stayed in touch with Julia by email ever since. When she heard I was going to be in NY (where she lives) for BEA, she asked if I wanted to go to lunch and a movie so we could finally meet. I have to admit that I was kind of nervous at first. Willow holds a lot of meaning for me and I was hoping I didn't act like a fangirl /dork :-)
Julia is the sweetest person and put me at ease immediately as if we've been friends for years already. May I add that she has the most beautiful jet black - long wavy hair and green eyes?? Very old school Hollywood. Argghhh so jealous!
We had lunch at Ocean Grill and then went to see Sex & the City 2 while Kevin (DH) went to see Robin Hood. Then we all met up and took a stroll to the local B&N where Julia signed another copy of Willow for me for a future auction!! then stopped at Magnolia bakery for the most incredible cupcakes I've had in years!! What a thrill to be able discuss a book that is so important to me with the author while chatting about Samantha/Charlotte/Carrie & Miranda....lol
