Mary Laura Philpott tells all. It's glorious. It's embarrassing. Nobody told you you'd be sitting on a barstool in front of a crowd in a short skirt.
Mary Laura Philpott is the author of I Miss You When I Blink, a book with the most awesome subtitle ever: Essays. That's it. Here's a little something she wrote on subtitles and why we love to hate them, from LitHub.
We've been following her book launch (check back to Episode 150, #NeverReady) and now, her triumphant tour. Or maybe not so much and certainly not all the time.
Links to some of the fantastic Indies who hosted Mary Laura:
Word Bookstore in Brooklyn and New Jersey
Malaprops Bookstore in Asheville, NC
The Snail on the Wall Huntsville, AL
Politics and Prose Washington, DC

City of Girls, Elizabeth Gilbert

And finally, no interview with Mary Laura would be complete without a shoutout to her favorite Indie--and her beloved employer--Parnassus Books in Nashville.
