Event: Reading and discussion at Barnes and Noble, Poughkeepsie
I’ll be reading and discussing The Literary Ladies’ Guide to the Writing Life on Friday, Sept. 9 at 7:30 at Barnes and Noble (2518 South Rd.) in Poughkeepsie, NY. Hudson Valley readers, please come to this event, which benefits the Elting Library in New Paltz, NY.
Gorgeous home with attached studio for sale!
I don’t usually pitch real estate in this newsletter, but my home in Poughkeepsie, NY is for sale. We rented it out for a couple of years and now we’d like to sell it. If you are in the Hudson Valley region of NY, or from NYC looking for a weekend escape (or know someone in the region who is looking), this house offers privacy along with suburban amenities. A unique feature is a beautiful, skylit attached studio. I wrote several of my books there! Here is the full info.
Time to think about school lunches…
From VegKitchen’s traffic reports, I see that tons of visitors are coming for the school lunch recipes and ideas. Some of these are great for brown-bagging grown-ups, as well. Not all of these are new, but many are improved. From someone who packed lunches every school day for 14 years (and so glad I no longer have to!), here are lots of useful tips and easy recipes.
