Short Story Title: A Day in the Life of My Great Brit Book Tour
Autor: Adrinana Trigiani
Book: American Girls About Town
Rating: 4 out of 5 horses
In honor of Andria Trigiani's new book coming out next week I read one of her shorts!
This is a story about an author who is going to Britain on a book tour with her husband and small baby. She has visions that the tour is going to be wonderful an wildly successful. After a harrowing plane ride where her daughter wanted to be held but only for 15 minute intervals she deplanes and breaks a tooth. Her PR manager is shuttling her to a TV interview, where no one can understand her. Here is my favorite quote:
"It's our first day of the book tour and I have already learned a big lesson: let go. Let go of the perfect picture and embrace the moment because the moment is extraordinary."
I need to remember this quote on a daily basis!
I highly recommend the Big Stone Gap series by Adriana Trigiani. Keep watching here I am chomping at the bit to read her new book and plan to do it soon -possibly in the hospital after I have my new addition.
