wonderful Greenlight Books in Brooklyn on May 2,2012. Despite the "release party" set up and the copious amounts of cheese sitting nearby, Freudenberger wasn't much for conversation that night. This was disappointing for me, charmed as I was from recently finishing several engrossing stories from Lucky Girl. She may have been shy, or feeling ill, it was hard to tell. In any event, hey it was free. She read for a time, briefly took a question and then signed books. It would have been nice to hear more from the author, one of the New Yorker's "20 Under 40," about her process, her background, or anything, but in any event, she graciously signed books and the night was over.
