I love this picture. Taken two years ago today, it captures the joy and nervous excitement of the Lilac Girls pub day. It shows my sister Polly surprising me (in mid photo op) where it all began–at the Lilac Girls launch party at The Corner Bookstore in NYC. That night was surreal and just the beginning of an incredible two years. Thank you to all the amazing readers and book groups and bookstores for championing Lilac Girls. I’m grateful for you every day.
