Book Release Salsa Party!
I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make it due to work commitments, but fortunately I did and was able to sign some books for the party goers and dance the night away with a lot of fun people. Sorry I didn't notify you guys ahead of time, would have been great to see you there. I thought it was just going to be a small book signing thing! Katie is planning other dance events to promote the book so I'll definitely let you know about any future goings on.
I illustrated the entire book without meeting Katie, the author. We had e-mailed some, but when we finally met I found out she's an incredible Salsa dancer! LINK is a great place for Salsa, they have dance lessons at 7pm every Tuesday and after that the place is open for dancing all night. You can go just to watch too. Everyone is extremely friendly and joyous. I haven't experienced something like that in a while. There were people from so many different countries dancing Salsa together, and they were terrific dancers, a really wonderful crowd.
