A year-end note of gratitude

Between attending twenty book clubs, giving two dozen public and private presentations on the font and French forced labor, reuniting with my Kindergarten teacher (she’s wearing a black turtleneck in the photo collage below), being on live television and radio, driving more than 2,500 miles to meet readers, participating in a book festival and an author fashion show (who me?!), hearing from a reader who knew Marcel, having the book come out in softcover, and returning to Paris to spend a day with Marcel’s family, 2018 has been a whirlwind of a year.

I am profoundly honored so many people welcomed Marcel, his words of love and hope, and his family into their hearts this year. I am deeply grateful to those who have helped spread the word about Marcel’s Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man’s Fate, those who have invited me to speak, and those who have become new friends along the way.

Thank you for every bit of your incredible support.
Thank you for your friendship.
Thank you for being part of this amazing year.
