Back from the 2010-2011 New York City Book Awards. It was an honor receiving the Award for Memoir. I met some wonderful people including Roger Pasquier, Chair of the Awards Committee, Susan Henshaw Jones, President and Director of the Museum of the City of New York and  host for the awards, as well as, Mark Bartlett, Head Librarian at the New York Library Society and Sara Holliday, Events Coordinator at the library.
I got to give an acceptance speech (now I know how getting an Oscar feels like– well kinda.)
The only regret I have is not trying the lox wrapped around asparagus– maybe next time...
