Getting ready to mail the 5 copies of White Gloves and Collards that I offered in a Goodreads giveaway. 728 people entered and more than 300 added my book to their "to read" list! If you're not familiar with goodreads.com, check it out. It's a wonderful resource for book enthusiasts.
Carroll Lassiter, an Edenton native and the artist whose painting is on the cover of White Gloves and Collards, was interviewed on a UNC-TV program about Chapel Hill area artists. (Her interview is at the beginning of the program.)
Enjoyed two book-related events this week. Did an Author Talk on Tuesday night at the beautiful Fallbrook Public Library. Then on Wednesday, I read from White Gloves and Collards at a UNC alumni "salon" led by English and Comparative Literature professor, Jane Danielewicz. Fun to be around a bunch of smart Tarheels!
After interviewing me last Saturday for her 550 KFYI radio program, "In the Kitchen with Jan," Jan d'Atri wrote about White Gloves and Collards recipes (including Sock-it-to-me Poundcake) in her weekly Scottsdale Republic column.
On Tuesday morning, I did an interview on "San Diego Living" with Marc Bailey. It was fun to see what goes on behind the scenes in a TV studio! You can watch the short, five-minute segment below.
