North of Beautiful & President Obama!


Self-absorption is never a pretty sight. However.

1. President Obama wrote my son a personal letter. (Yes, he did.)
2. My politico friends--you know who you are--all have photos of themselves with our president. Gallivanting off to DC for the Inauguration. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Ahem. Just look who is NEXT to the President here on the B&N Home Page. Hmmmm... Could that be Terra?

~justina who is now weaning herself slowly away from the computer where she has been posted since her favorite B&Nie (beanie?), Brenda Gurung (CRM of mucho amazingness and event planner extraordinaire of memorable book parties), phoned her in the wee early hours and ordered her to said PC. She realizes this book-absorption is really not becoming. Or healthy. BUT says that this is infinitely healthier and more pleasant than watching the stock ticker.

Lemme get this straight. President Obama wrote your son a letter. And then your book shows up NEXT TO HIM on the B&N page.

Am I getting this right?

Wow. Also, I totally want to read that letter! So amazing! How long ago was that?

Maya and Jackie--YUP! President Obama wrote a letter to my son a year ago. My son wrote a fan letter to him and then asked what kids could do to help him change the world. Obama wrote back a personal letter--telling him to practice empathy. It was a gorgeous letter. We're framing it!
