OMG!! Buzz Girl Dona Sarkar's book launch for How to Salsa in a Sari was great.
It was held on Saturday at a charming indie bookstore called Parkplace Books over on Seattle's Eastside.
Dona had a great turnout for the launch. Co-workers, family, friends, and a remarkable number of teens!
To start, she made a lovely speech thanking everyone who'd helped her along the way -- and then she read two passages from Salsa. Appropriately, she had a snack table full of chips and different salsas along with the usual cocktail food. Also, there was a tarot reader (long line!) and a cute little acoustic band playing tunes. There were a lot of women in, you guessed it, Saris. And check out Dona! Doesn't she look gorgeous in hers?!
Here I am getting my signed copy of the book! I am so proud of Dona. She's a great critique partner and friend. And her book rocks!
There were lots of people there for the signing. Here's a smattering of the line, including the lovely Tiara Girls, a group of writing friends from the Eastside.
Congratulations, Dona! I couldn't be happier for you and Salsa.
