Last week was a super fun & energizing one for me – out of town friends in for a visit, a trip to Sunday morning dance jam with a group of my dear ones, and a lovely conversation about Playing Big, hosted by local journalist Lisen Stromberg, that raised funds for the Journalism & Women Symposium.

I woke up on Wednesday to the surprise that Senator Cory Booker had posted one of my poems on his Facebook page. I have no idea how my work got into his hands, but it was a delight!

Later in the week, goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle publication, published a Q&A article with me about the Playing Big book. I have been reading and enjoying their book features for years, and it was really sweet for me to get to be part of one.

You might have seen from my social media that we also did a live Q&A taking people’s career questions on the goop Facebook page on Friday, and I loved that! 30 minutes of intense, immediate question-answering. Kinda like a coaching lightning round. You can check out the goop article here.

For those local to the San Francisco Bay Area, I want to invite you all to come over to Book Passage in Corte Madera this Thursday, February 5th, at 7pm. I’ll be doing a short talk about the book, Q&A and book signing. I would love the chance to meet you and say hello. Hope to see you there.
