First, if you're near Naperville, IL – and hold up a minute. Naperville, by virtue of being outside Chicago, is kind of near EVERYTHING.
It's right in the middle of North America, almost sort of!
Tuesday 2 April – 7pm
LADY JANE’S SALON
Le Chocolat du Bouchard
2nd Floor (aka The Loft)
129 South Washington Street
Naperville, IL 60540
Special event: Jane Litte of Dear Author chats with Julie about Love Irresistibly. Julie will be signing books, and also giving away a signed collection of all her books (JUST THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE, PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, SOMETHING ABOUT YOU, A LOT LIKE LOVE, ABOUT THAT NIGHT, LOVE IRRESISTIBLY) to one lucky attendee!
Naperville is convenient to everything, really. So if you're in Yellowknife, no excuses!
Then, Friday, Julie James will be in New York, where I will be doing an informal and likely very goofy Q&A with her:
Friday 5 April – 7pm
BARNES & NOBLE
86th & Lexington Ave
150 East 86th Street
New York, NY 10028
Author event: Sarah Wendell of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books chats with Julie about Love Irresistibly. Book signing.
Unfortunately for me, the Upper East Side of Manhattan isn't really close to everything. There's ocean on one side and the rest of the US on the other, accessible by two tunnels and two bridges, plus some ferrys:
Well, maybe there's something to the east….
Wait, I think I see something….
OH HAI PORTUGAL! Hi Ireland! Hola, Canarias! So Portugal, Ireland, and the Canary Islands, plus a bit of Morocco and Western Sahara – you're close enough. Come on over! It's just an ocean, come on.
If you'd like to meet Julie James (she's very awesome and has fabulous shoes – I'm already worried which shoes I should wear, you guys) come on over! The 86th and Lex BN has a terrific staff and a wonderful event space on the lover level. If I recall correctly, it's enclosed, too, so we can get as bawdy as we want. Heh. The description says “no-holds-barred” but I don't think we'd planned on any wrestling.
So if you're Naperville (which is everyone, pretty much) or near the Upper East Side (HI PORTUGAL!) I hope you'll join either me or Jane for one of these two events.
