We had good food from the Vizzi truck (I'm a huge proponent of a food truck for a party, but when you don't have a kitchen, it's especially handy to have the food drive up...and then drive away), and wonderful sweets from Eat Sweets Pastry in Brentwood.
Look, I throw a lot of parties, and I have never in my life seen the sweets table so devoured. People loved the selections of tarts and cookies and truffles. Check 'em out here.
It was just such a special night. I'm so proud of Nora and this book and her career. She was an original founder of our book club, so to see her have a book that will be read by other book clubs is chest-puff-worthy.
