You Need To Experience Danni Starr Pop Up Book Stop

Hey Cuties,

I told you about my girl Danni Starr a week or so ago. We chatted in a coffee shop about her new book Empathy and Eyebrows before it came out. Now the book it out and honey, the people are weighing in on it.  Danni has topped some of the Amazon Charts (make sure you leave a review when you purchase.) She is now taking her show on the road and doing  Pop Up Book Stops.

Danni had a book launch event and I had to miss it because it was on Babe’s birthday.  So, I was thrilled when she said she would be doing Pop Up Book Stop. Even better when I found out it would take place in my old stomping grounds. The very place I grew up in and 15 minutes from my current home.

This isn’t an RSVP type of event, it is more “Gorilla Style”. You put the information out there and see who shows up.  This was the first one and we had a nice size group. Danni wanted an up close and personal type of feel and that is exactly what we got. We had an open conversation, she shared about the book, the process and some of the feedback she has received. Then she took questions.

Danni selected two essays (read chapters) from the book and read them to us. It was a real old school type of vibe and I loved that.  We pulled up a piece of carpet and pillows and sat Indian Style.

We were focused like school children with books open and following along.

After reading Danni did more questions, it was real kitchen table talk. We laughed, we shared and we were encouraged. Listen every event doesn’t have to be let me get super cute, stand here and hold up the wall. Don’t get me wrong, I like those events too but I LOVE these type of events just the same.

Because we are women who juggle life wearing several hats Danni’s baby girl affectionately known as Smooch joined her in her chair. She took the book and acted as if she was reading it then apparently she got to a part so funny she covered her face and tossed her head back with laughter. That is how you know a book is good girl, make sure you get you a copy of Empathy and Eyebrows so you can have the same experience as Smooch.

After all the fun we’ve had Danni sold books, autographed books and took pictures with everyone. I have the Kindle version so no autographed needed for me. However, I wanted a hug and a picture because we are such kindred spirits. I love to support women living, dreaming, doing and making ish happen.

My childhood friend Erin met me there. I hadn’t seen her in years but I love her to pieces. It was nice to get all caught up enjoy the event at the same time. We became friends at the age of 11 years old in the 6th grade. I value my friendships and although I’m closer to some than others I appreciate Erin’s genuine spirit.

Villa Alena Moscato & Peach (Semi-Sweet)

The napkins they had were super cute. They all had cute little sayings on them. This wine though, this wine was so damn good I took a picture of the bottle.  I love wine and I don’t get all fancy with it but I love a Moscato and this Villa Alena Moscato & Peach was pure satisfaction.

I did a lot of video and I was going to share it with you. Then I decided I didn’t want to give it away. I want you to check out Danni at her Pop Up Book Stops so you can have an authentic experience.

    I would have loved to have been there for that. I feel like we’re beginning to lose the feel of reading now that everything has gone digital. What an awesome time!

    Sounds like a really cool event. I love laid back events. I feel more comfortable. Do you know if the tour is only in the DC area or is she visiting other states?

    I like this pop up event, it looked super comfortable, chill and intimate. Well book signings are cool it doesn’t allow for much intimacy that is sometimes is greatly needed. Great interpretation of her daughter laughing at the book.
