This is a major fundraising event by the Sacramento Public Library Foundation for 28 public libraries in Sacramento.

Reader’s Digest expands our audience

Reader’s Digest has a global circulation of 10.5 million, so I’m very excited that they are running a serial of The Hand on the Mirror in the issue on the stands now. What a great way to reach even more people who can be emboldened to tell their own stories! It’s online now. Each international edition decides which stories to share from the U.S. edition, so we’ll let you know as it appears there.

Interviews in Madrid and Barcelona

After a whirlwind tour of Spain this week that included 11 interviews in Madrid and five in Barcelona, Janis is headed to Amsterdam. Here are links to two Spanish interviews, with TV3 in Barcelona, a 12-minute interview on primetime TV, and a video interview on Radio M80 with Juan Luis Cano. The interviews are in Spanish except for Janis, who is being translated.
