If you entered a name, I’ll send you an ISABELLA MOON kitchen magnet just for playing. Drop me a note at laura@laurabenedict.com with your name and address and I’ll get it in the mail.

I’m in Los Gatos (near San Francisco) today doing a book club appearance. I was supposed to fly through Salt Lake City yesterday, but they had their biggest snow storm in six years just about the time I left the house for the airport, and so my plane was delayed way past my connection time. It was the first time I was ever happy to be sent through Atlanta!
