    I picked up Stati Zitta, Josie at the Brooklyn Book Festival. I just read it now once more from beginning to end. It is an absolutely delightful read!! The story has me itching to draw and write, but most of all – to bake some biscotti as a surprise for my daughter when she gets home from school! Thanks for sharing your creative talents, Leah

    • Dear Leah,
      Thanks so much for your good words about Stati Zitta, Josie. I am glad you liked the story, and am delighted that you were going to make your daughter biscotti…anyway maybe share one of your stories!
      Did she enjoy the biscotti? I hope you both did. One of my most treasured memories of my mom is sitting at the kitchen table together, just the two of us, and dunking our biscotti into coffee for her, and milk for me. Sometimes she would pour a little coffee into my milk. Having coffee with friends is still one of my favorite things to do.

      Sorry I took so long to acknowledge your note, and thank you for it. Happy New Year!
