Laura’s reading at Booksmith in San Francisco, held on  September 7 and hosted by Grant Faulkner, was a big hit! Filmmaker Jeff Feuerzeig, the auteur of Author, made a surprised everyone by making an unexpected appearance — he insisted there was no way he’d miss the first reading held in the US for Laura under her own name! Laura persuaded him to share a few words with the audience, which was much appreciated by all. The Booksmith event was standing-room-only, and the books flew off the shelves. Don’t take our word for it — here’s the tweet!
