Just returned from the Thirty-first Annual Friends of Erma Bombeck AUTHORS LUNCHEON hosted by The Arizona Women’s Board, a fundraiser for the prevention of kidney disease through awareness, education and research ( Truly an event EXTRAVAGANZA held at the ARIZONA BILTMORE (1100 attendees) including Master of Ceremonies HARVEY MACKAY with the Author Program including WILLIE GEIST/American Freak Show, The Completely Fabricated Stories of Our New National Treasures; CARL HIAASEN/Star Island; WALTER MOSLEY/The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey; JESSICA SEINFELD/Double Delicious: Good, Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives and ADRIANA TRIGIANI/Don’t Sing at the Table: Life Lessons from My Grandmothers. A book signing/program It was FIRST CLASS ALL THE WAY!!! Entertainment galore!!! An Event I won’t forget!

I first wrote Adriana Trigiani to participate back in April. Now after many months of e-mail communicating, I have the privilege to meet a HUGE SUPPORTER of Jo's Library Quilt. Talk about ONE BIG HEART! Here's a lady with a GIANT ONE! She's helping Jo's Library Quilt Build A Library In Many, Many Ways! And in addition to a fabulous writer, she's also a "stand up comedian." I didn't know! Ya gotta hear her speak! It's hilarious! It just wasn't long enough! (Thanks Adriana!!!)

Little did I know there was a comic on Jo's Library Quilt! Well...honestly, I should have know. My letter to him refers to "Kick Ass" and "Paradise  Screwed" so I should have got some kind of clue!  I wrote Carl Hiassen WAY BACK in March and fortunately had the opportunity to also meet him in Phoenix. Gave him a little "peek" at THE QUILT." And ironically his "signature square" is right next to Adriana Trigiani! AMAZING wouldn't you say? (Thanks Carl!)
