Oh my! I just went to Susan Branch's website and read that she will be in her store in Californa on Sunday, February 4th, noon to 4:00pm for a Welcome Home/Valentines Day/Booksigning Party. It's a 3 hour drive for me to get there and I know it's going to be packed but I'm thinking about going! I LOVE Susan Branch and have loved her since her first book, Heart of the Home came out in the 80s. I loved that she was from California and she moved to Martha's Vineyard. It was like she was living MY dream life. I think I would be totally star-struck if I saw her in person. If I decide to go I will take lots of pictures to post.
