Shout out to everyone who attended last night’s paperback launch for THIS IS HOW, by master confessional Augusten Burroughs. It was a super fun time, thanks largely to our rocking audience, who had the hutzpah to ask the author such questions as: How do you deal with feelings of vulnerability? And: Will you smoke a joint with us?
Also, this events coordinator would like to say that Augusten Burroughs was hands-down more deeply invested in our store photo than any other author to date—offering suggestions about where to stand for optimal lighting, and telling me to relax. Pretty much the nicest guy ever.
P.S. No, Augusten Burroughs will not smoke a joint with you. Pot makes him paranoid.
