VERY VALENTINE that would be a marvelous Valentine’s gift for wife, friend, mother, grandmother neighbor… you get the idea that likes to read.  VV is the start of a trilogy so if your recipient loves this character you are a shoe in for future gift ideas. 

Adriana just appeared on the today show in the fourth hour with Hoda and Kathie Lee and she is so much fun. If you missed her she will be on the Weekend Today on Saturday, February 7th.  You will definitely want to come out to one of her book promotions coming up in your city, http://www.adrianatrigiani.com/dates.html, or if you are not in one of these cities pick up one of her books after you see her cause she is just so much fun. 

More exciting news as well from Adriana, 24/8 will be staying tuned for the updates.  In April 2009 (date TBD) she will host a new book event called: THE WORLD’S BIGGEST BOOK CLUB— a first, with you as my guest(s) for a fabulous lunch and book discussion with me about Very Valentine—or whatever else you have on your minds!

As the details are promised today, which is the publication date of Very Valentine. It will take place in Greenwich Village, NY.  But don’t despair if you live far away, there will be a drawing for one club to fly to New York City to join the fun.

Additional news announced on Ariana’s site as well if you are a fan:

The movie version of Big Stone Gap—is casting and we plan on being in production in 2009 in Virginia. Thank you for your patience- and keep the faith- it’s all coming together. The divine Rosanne Cash is composing the score- Whoopi Goldberg, who will star as Fleeta Mullins, gave me a lovely shout-out.
