OK ok... I held TWO book celebration parties, not one! But hey it was a seven year project so who's counting anymore! The celebration at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA was sold out - with a crowd that seemed as happy as I was to have the book on hand. Kurdish musician Andrew Aytac sang- and I told stories from the book and anecdotes of my travels. My versatile musician husband played Middle Eastern drums. The second event (pictured here) was in Framingham where I was happy to see some of my collaborators on the book and old friends I hadn't seen in years. A photo of me dressed up in my "Kurdish- Las Vegas" outfit for the grand finale is attached. I was surprised I could even read the last story the sequins were so busy creating a disco ball effect.
