FB live chat together with the wonderful Jill Santopolo, editor of She Persisted and She Persited Around the World

I came back on Monday from a visit to New York, where I joined Chelsea Clinton and our editor Jill Santopolo at the Brooklyn Library for a special book event. Thank you so much to everybody who came, and everybody who helped setting it all up. During my trip I also visited the Penguin office. The wonderful Jill Santopolo (editor of She Persisted and She Persisted Around the World) interviewed me there during a live FB chat. Here we go!

She Persisted Around The World is celebrating its book birthday on March 6 and Chelsea Clinton is going to tour the country signing it! (And her other books as well.) I will be joining for three events, too! A special shout out to everybody in San Francisco and the Bay Area (because I call it my home 😊 !) meet us on March 14 at the Book Passage in San Francisco! ALSO, our wonderful editor, Jill Santopolo, will be moderating one or more of the joint events in New York.
