This past Thursday evening, my mom went to hear
Maira Kalman speak at the Westport Library.
I'll pause for a collective sigh of envy on three.
I adore Maira Kalman,
and I've been a fan long before
her collaborations with well known designers,
and her on-going blog for the New York Times.
My sweet mom brought along my absolute favorite book
penned by Ms. Kalman: Chicken Soup, Boots,
and had her sign it for me.
Above is the photo my mom snapped for me!
I'm just pleased as punch to have
her signature in my treasured children's book.
