Who Says Bookish Gals Don’t Party?

As an author, the most fulfilling thing about finally publishing has been the fact that I’m now watching my work take on a life of its own. I spent endless twitchy hours sweating over every sentence and now the beast is out in the world and completely out of my control. What a relief.


I’ve recently been contacted by a handful of book clubs. One of my goals in writing the memoir was to generate discussion about themes such as shame and sexuality and the empowering potential of narrative. Reading groups seem like an ideal venue for this. I’m speaking with a few in the next couple of months and I’m really looking forward to it.

This picture was sent to me from a party planner in Florida, who held a Some Girls-themed soiree, complete with hip scarf party favors. She also included a number of thoughtful questions and I was tickled to see that the group had found such a fun-loving way to approach the material.

If you’re interested in having me meet with your book club, either in person or by skype, let me know!

  1. Hi Jillian,

    My girlfriends and I picked your book to be our first book for our new book club. I have not been able to put it down!! Our next meeting is on Sept 28th to discuss the book. I would be interested to talk to you about speaking to our book club. We are located in Silicon Valley (just up the road a bit from you) 🙂

    Let me know if you are available to speak either by Skype or if we were lucky enough to have you in the area for some random reason.

    Ciao, Lisa

  2. Oh no- I’m so sorry I missed this, Lisa! I’ve been a bit swamped with deadlines, so I’m way behind on my emails/comments etc. If you still want to chat, I’d be happy to set up something via Skype. Thanks for reading the book!
