A friend of mine is a librarian, and her library hosted a talk, book reading, and book signing with Philippa Gregory.  Let me tell you, she was a great speaker--I highly encourage you to go see her if you get the chance.  She was extremely funny--I laughed as much as if I had been to a comedy show--but was also very knowledgable and interesting to listen to.

I've yet to read a Phillipa Gregory book, primarily because I'm just not that into the Tudor period.   However, I know the thrill of meeting one of your favorite authors.   It's especially great when you find out that they are good people.    I'm happy for you!

That is awesome.  She was at the National Book Festival last year and we were in DC at the time but didn't get a chance to see her.  She is what started me on Historical Fiction.
