“Mamalita” Book Tour goes to Bryn Mawr. “Mamalita” now in San Diego Public Library

I grew up at the Jersey shore and went to college in Delaware, which is why I’m so happy I get to read from Mamalita: An Adoption Memoir at the Borders Bookstore in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Many of my friends still live in the area, and already have promised to come. If you’re reading this, I hope you’ll consider attending, too!

Here are the details:
Friday, January 21, 2011 at 7 p.m.
Borders Bookstore–Bryn Mawr, PA
Rosemont Shopping Center
1149 Lancaster Avenue
Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
610-527-1500

My other wonderful news is that my friend, Penny (the San Diego librarian who arranged for me to read at the Santee Branch on December 3, 2010, at 10 a.m.) just informed me that Mamalita: An Adoption Memoir is now catalogued into the San Diego library system and will begin to circulate. Over the course of my lifetime, I have spent countless hours in libraries—in Mamalita‘s “Acknowledgments” section, I even thank my local Marin County system for “quiet space and needed resources”—so I’m delighted and honored to know that my book is part of San Diego’s permanent collection.

If you live in San Diego, and haven’t yet read Mamalita, get thee to your local library and check it out. (Afterwards, please buy multiple copies for everyone you know!)

Looking forward to hitting the road soon, seeing old friends, and meeting new ones.
