I went to Grace Lin's book launch party on Saturday. Wow, that girl can plan a party! Here's how it went:
I took the train in to the city (Boston). On the way, I played Mario Brothers on my Nintendo and got irritated by people talking on cellphones (which was everyone but me).
As soon as I arrived at the party, the first person I saw was Grace, looking so pretty and happy and smart and like someone who should definitely be named Grace.
Here we are (we got our glasses at a two-for-one sale):
Okay, so then I headed for the food. But it was so dang pretty, I wasn't about to be the first one to mess it up:
I guess when you have a book launch party, you get hugged a lot. This is Leo Landry hugging Grace (or Grace hugging Leo Landry).
