Diary: Sinatra (Continued)
Sunday, May 17
Vicki picks me up at 8:30 am for a live interview on CNN. Bobbi Battista (one of my favorites!) is in a studio in D.C. and I’m in New York but we click! Finally, I do an interview I’m proud of. One that is — yes! — focused on the book.
I’ve talked to a couple of writers recently whose publishers send them to “Media School” to learn how to do this. I think it’s a good idea! If I ever do another tour I’ll do practice interviews first! I’ll pass this on to Randy. Her book is about a young female commercial airline pilot (which she was) and I’m sure people will want to talk to her about it.
Noon: George and I meet Larry for brunch, across the street from a Barnes and Noble. I can’t resist. After brunch, while George goes into a luggage shop to find a lightweight bag, Larry and I go into Barnes and Noble. Larry hides while I ask if they would like me to sign copies of my book. When the assistant manager brings over a short stack a young woman standing at the table says, “Judy Blume…Is she still around?”
