Tea & Crumples makes its debut on Monday! I’m taking deep breaths into a paper bag and spending time with friends this weekend. Birthing a book into the world brings along some of the same emotions as birthing children: punchy protectiveness, ecstatic goodwill, hollowing insecurity, and of course, joy. I’d love to see my local readers at the big launch next Saturday, November 7, at the Main Branch Durham County Library. When? At teatime, of course! 3pm.
