Book Release Party Today

I hope to see you today--yes, this very afternoon, at 2:00!--for a book-release party. We'll celebrate my YA novel and essay-writing guide How I Got Rich Writing C Papers as well as my sort-of memoir Sidewalk Chalk Hopscotch.

It occurs to me that a book-release party feels kind of self-indulgent. Like, "Hey--look at me! I wrote some books!" Then again, if writing and sharing a book isn't worth celebrating, what is?

Anyway: I hope you make it out. Say hi and eat a scoop of frozen custard, huh?

A Perfect Meal

Have you ever noticed how most of the best meals are pretty simple? Don't get me wrong: I like to try new things, and I love reading descriptions at restaurants of exactly how a meal has been cooked and spiced. That said, the split lunch I had today--one sandwich at around noon, the other at around 3:30--was, well, perfect. And simple.

At noon, I cut two slices of challah from a loaf I bought at Lunds. Between those two slices, I inserted deli meat (barbecue chicken) and fresh avocado. So it was a chicken and avocado sandwich on good bread--that's it. Oh, and I ate a peach, too.

At 3:30, I cut another two slices of challah (knowing that I have about a day before it gets too dry to eat without toasting it first), spread peanut butter with honey on the bottom slice, plopped a banana sliced vertically on top of the peanut butter, and voila!: a peanut butter, honey, and banana sandwich, the perfect second half to a perfect meal.

Now the real question: Why did I write this? I don't know. If nothing else, maybe I whet your appetite, huh? For more on my (lack of) food wisdom, see my Chipotle Burrito Test.

Oh, and don't forget to attend my book-release party (also a back-to-school celebration) on Sunday, August 25th. Details below, in the previous post.

Book Release Party

Please read about an exciting event (my book-release party!) below:

A Back to School Book Release Party

On Sunday, August 25th, from 2-4 p.m., make your way to the Mozaic CafĂ© for a celebration of Longfellow author Andy Hueller’s two newest books—the young adult novel and essay writing guide How I Got Rich Writing C Papers and the sort-of memoir Sidewalk Chalk Hopscotch.

Get your books signed by Andy and then enjoy the afternoon on the Mozaic’s beautiful patio. The address: 3019 Minnehaha Avenue South, Minneapolis 55406.

We’ll also celebrate the upcoming school year—with bookmarks and writing instruction! Come with a writing sample and any questions you have about writing: grammar, punctuation, process, it’s all fair game. Andy and his twin brother Patrick, also an author, will answer your questions.
