Simon&Schusterput on a book launch for The Sisters of Versailles in Toronto this week. It wasan amazing event, and what struck me the most about it was how similar it feltto a wedding or a baby shower – a great group of people from disparate pointsin your life, all coming together to celebrate with you. It was a lovely feeling, and certainly a bookcan be described a baby (though books take more than 9 months and thepublishing process can be much more painful!).
