I go to a lot of author signings. Here are some of my favourite signatures from the last three and a half years.
  1. Christina Haag
  2. Judy Blume
    I got to tell her that the most rebellious thing I did when I was 14 was read Forever.
  3. Colum McCann
    His book, Let The Great World Spin, is in my All Time Top Five. Wonderful to discover he's also a really nice guy.
  4. Elissa Schappell
    Such a compliment from such an accomplished writer. I had the slightly terrifying privilege of studying with her at the Tin House Summer Workshop in 2014.
  5. Hanna Pyvlainen
    I asked for magical writer dust.
  6. Karin Tanabe
    Before we were friends
  7. Karin Tanabe
    And after we'd become friends
  8. Reif Larsen
    Had a wonderful week studying with him at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown in 2014.
  9. David Sedaris
  10. Lauren Groff
    She high fived me when I told her I'd just got an agent.
  11. Jesse Eisenberg
  12. Sarah MacLean
    From one West Wing fan to another
  13. Jami Attenberg
  14. Jami Attenberg
    Two years and a Facebook friendship later
  15. Olympia Snowe
    I told her she was mentioned in my first novel.
  16. James Scott Bell
    He writes "how to" books, and they were invaluable to me at the beginning of my writing career.
  17. J. Courtney Sullivan
  18. Celeste Ng
  19. Claire Messud
  20. Gary Shteyngart
    He says he's not blurbing anymore, but I think this constitutes a written contract.
  21. Jenny Offill
    The super fancy PEN/Faulkner event was MCed by none other than @bjnovak.
  22. Adelle Waldman
    I owe Adelle so very much - one day I may tell that story. Loved studying with her in summer 2015 at Sara Lawrence. And loved her book!
  23. Hillary Clinton
    I'm mostly not posting non personalised inscriptions but this is pretty cool.
  24. Elizabeth Warren
    I love her mind. I love her shoes.
