Book Update & NYC Book Signing

Meanwhile… in cookie dough land (which is somewhere in between la la land and neverland, if you were curious)…

Explore Aspen Book Signing

I had my second book signing in my hometown of Aspen, Colorado. Many thanks to John (and Cashmere the cat) at Explore Booksellers for hosting.

I have to say this event was extra special to me, considering there wasn’t an unfamiliar face in the crowd. Long time family friends, old teachers, my childhood best friend (hi Ella!) were all there. Even my elementary school librarian showed up.

It was like a little mini reunion. I loved it.

I’ve also made a few appearances on TV and Radio shows regarding the book. Check out the press page for a full listing and clips (when available). Just promise not to poke fun.

NYC Book Signing at Posman Books

I’m also excited to announce a new book signing in NYC! I’ll be at Posman Books in Chelsea Market on Monday, July 30th at 1:00 pm. You should totally come hang out. Make up an excuse and take a long lunch break.

I’ll be in the city after partaking in the 3rd annual Big Summer Potluck (my excitement can barely be contained). Tell me, what should one do with an afternoon in New York City? Or rather, what should one eat? My time is limited and, unfortunately, so is my stomach space. I want to make the most of it.

  1. Hi!
    Bought your book and love it! Today I will make the cookie dough icecream.

    Love the blog by the way.
    Greetings from Sweden. :)

  2. Aw! It’s so sweet that so many people you know from your community showed up to support you!!

  3. Aw I love it! I wish I could have been one of the familiar faces in the crowd!

  4. Go, you!!!
    That is awesome!

  5. Hi Lindsay! It was so great to see you too!

  6. In NYC, it has to be Billy’s Bakery for cupcakes. Deelish.

    Sundaes and Cones for ice cream, but you’d have to cross over toward the East Village.

    I’m an honorary Aspenite! I went to CRMS and snowboarded with AVSC. :) Explore Bookstore has to be one of the best bookstores in the world.

  7. Every time I’m in the city I make a point of stopping at Ess-A-Bagel. Most awesome bagels ever, IMHO. Even if you don’t have room to eat one, grab a dozen and stuff ’em in the suitcase, they freeze and reanimate quite well.

  8. All of my friends are talking about the High Line! Supposedly great food

  9. Free afternoon in NYC? Duh, cupcakes & wine.

    You’re welcome.

    PS. There’s beer too, for Taylor.

  10. Yaaay! Congratulations on the signing! Looks like lots of fun…great job on all the hard work!

  11. Posman is in my neighborhood, so I hope to be there. Try a Fat Witch brownie at Chelsea Market. If you’re exploring Chelsea, I’d recommend Billy’s Bakery.

  12. Eataly in Flatiron is great and Super Linda is awesome too.

  13. If you’re already in Chelsea Market, you couldn’t be in a better spot. Grab a Fatwitch Brownie and take it up to the High Line for a walk.

  14. Aww, shoot, I have to work. Have fun in the city and get some brownies while you’re at Chelsea market!

  15. I wish I could be at the NYC book signing! My 2 favorite bakeries in NYC are Donna Bell’s and Crumbs. I would recommend trying them both if you can. The red velvet brownies at Donna Bell’s are to die for and pistachio cupcake at Crumbs is so yummy.

  16. Sadly, I’m on the west coast or I’d be there with my book! It’s so unique and makes all of us who grew up eating cookie dough feel normal!! XOXO

  17. Oh man I wish I lived closer to NYC! I’d totally have gone.

  18. Hmmm… one afternoon! That’s a tough one. Chelsea Markets itself is a great place to explore and is full of treats! I’m a huge fan of the Jacque Torres ice cream sandwiches they sell there, sandwiched between two of their fabulous cookies. And the Highline is right there–the beautiful elevated park that’s worth a walk.

  19. So cool! Love the shirt too!

  20. Two things we have in common…

    Cookie Dough and Colorado

  21. This has got to be SO exciting for you! After all the work that went into writing the book, and now to meet your readers and fans…how fun!

  22. Very cool! The book signing in CO looked wonderful! I bet that was a really great day for you. Many congratulations! Can’t wait for the next book. :)

  23. How long will you be at Posman for? Sad I might not be able to get there until 2PM!

  24. Can’t wait to see you at the Big Summer Potluck. And I will definitely try to sneak away for a long lunch hour!

  25. I really wish I could make it to come see you but alas, Monday is no good for me to make a day trip to NYC. I don’t think taking a long lunch break would fly for me! Haha!
