Livs


One my NY BFF's (and sometimes SLC BFF), Olivia Birdsall, is such a good writer. I mean seriously. The type that makes you want to put your pen down and just give up because why try writing on your own, when you can read hers? I kid. But, honest to goodness, her book is great fun to read. She has such a unique and interesting way of telling stories and creating relationships.

Anyhooter (as she would say), she's doing a book reading and signing with Louise Plummer (who is equally awesome and I had the pleasure of sharing a delightful cupcake with once) tomorrow at Gateway Barnes & Noble in SLC at 7 p.m. You should go just for the signing alone. Olivia writes just about the most clever and hysterical notes to people. If you can't go tomorrow, pick up her book next time you're down there. Sometimes she leaved signed treasures on the bookshelves for those lucky enough to snatch them up.
If you're still not sold, Your Heart Out has done a great write up on her recently. You can get to know her better there, and then ask about her Tina Turner aspirations when you meet her in person tomorrow. Go ahead, she won't bite. And she'll probably have a good story to tell.

Did you know there will be CUPCAKES? I read this today via comment on Your Heart Out.

Suh-weet! Be there or be square.

I will bribe people with baked goods to listen to me spout off... it's true.... and thank you, jamie, for always being so kind.... I am your number one fan, and am constantly awed by YOUR writing.... sometimes I read your posts and feel like I'm reading poems. also true.

Jamie - I just love checking your blog, so I linked you, hope you don't mind. I love the pictures you have taken on your road trip.

Olivia does indeed resemble a Turkish Princess, a totally smart, erudite princess with a mean pen.

Sidenote: She also happens likes Turkish Delight.
