I could get used to this - book launch in DC

My buddy, Nancy M and myself at Zaytinya

This is why I love publishing. Lovely people, great parties and intelligent conversation. We met Nancy Lambert from DK Publishing at Zaytinya in DC for cocktails and nibbles and saw the most gorgeous book on natural history I've had the pleasure to lay eyes on. Brilliant photographs and bite-sized nuggets of information that left me hungry to read the rest when it is released. The Smithsonian and DK Publishing did an amazing job! The book will be released in October 2010.

My girls are thrilled with the press materials we brought home in the swag bag and the teens have already claimed the notebooks to show off at school next fall. A fabulous way to spend an evening, thank you, Nancy!


  1. Yay! Glad you had fun, Stacey! :D


  2. It sounds fabulous! I admit, I'm envious.

    And look at you in this picture! Youth snuck into this photo with you. :)

  3. Yep, Nancy's a mere child compared to my old self. Thanks for pointing that out, Janna. ;)
