Today I stood next to Hillary Clinton for three and a half hours while she signed books and gave people high fives. I never imagined anyone saying things like “Maggie, we have to go upstairs to get briefed by Secret Service” to me. 😂 My life is weird and good and I am so sleepy. Good night, guys. ✨
I’m taking a personal day at my full-time job tomorrow so I can work at BookPeople and hang out with Hillary Clinton instead. My boss is super excited for me, so he and my coworkers taped pictures of Hillary Clinton looking super excited all over my car. I haven’t stopped laughing about it. 😂😂😂
I LOVE FRIENDSGIVING.
Working events at BookPeople means sometimes you see authors and they say things like “Nice to see you again.” I volunteered for the Texas Book Festival today and got the chance to see two authors who I worked in-store events for in the last few months. (One of whom was Nathan Englander, which was great because I forgot my copy of WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT ANNE FRANK at home when he was at BookPeople in September.) It’s been a very tiring and equally wonderful weekend. Until next year, TBF. ✌🏻
I should already be in bed, but I’m enjoying the best goddamn Old Fashioned this side of I-35 and reminiscing about a very long, very good day. I’m not sure how it can get better than sharing an inside joke with Tom Hanks, but I’m really looking forward to day two of Texas Book Fest.
