I launched The Family Way from my home in Montreal last night. It was a very different event from the one I had often imagined while writing the book. Who knew a pandemic would get in the way of my plans? When launch day came, I still had no idea how to feel. So many of my friends had to do it this way too. Solider on, I thought. But I have to say, I was surprised at how much fun I had—how much joy I felt, just sitting at my desk and staring into my computer like I had most days for the past year. I loved every minute of it. My host, Rachel Giese, had prepared such thoughtful questions. And I could see the great number of friends and family watching from their homes. I was alone but I didn’t feel alone. I felt supported. To everyone who came, thanks.
If you missed it, no worries. You can still see it below.
