Last night’s conversation was even more fun than I imagined it would be – and I have the Batgirl comic to prove it!
Of course the pre and post conversations are always so much more amusing and easy…because we don’t have an audience. So too bad we didn’t talk more about the missed references to certain..um..film stars, and the details of your Captain Marvel costume. But no matter…
Andrea, you are delightful. Thanks for coming out to the Toronto Women’s Bookstore and sharing your humour, your family, and your insights with us. It was great to hear the stories told in your voice (much funnier than in my head) and I was especially touched by the dedication (for lack of a better word) that you spoke of at the end – writing the book and sharing the stories so your family members could enjoy them too pre-shiva. What a gift.
Folks, if you haven’t picked up your copy of The Choosing yet – get yourself to the Toronto Women’s Bookstore if you’re in Toronto (or order it online if you’re not). It’s a collection of memories that made me laugh, made me cry, and made me remember what family is really all about – warts and all.
If you missed our chat, you can watch the video. Not the same, but almost as good as being there…
Wise words last night – every day we choose who we are or who we are going to be. Hence the title.
