Last night I happily attended my first (I hope of many more!) Happier Hour Literary Salons in NYC. The evening’s featured authors were Claire Bidwell Smith and Jillian Lauren. The event was hosted by Aidan Donnelley Rowley, a woman, mother, and writer I now feel very lucky to know. Her questions were insightful and inspired deep, stirring conversation.
