Have You Seen My Mother?

While we're waiting for the Cybils Awards announcement, I want to share some photos of my beautiful, talented mother in action painting alpana on my California Dreamin' mini book tour, along with one of me signing a copy of Rickshaw Girl as a Valentine for my Fire Escape friends ... that's you!

At Towne Center Books in Pleasanton ...



Where Baba welcomes visitors
and displays Ma's alpana:



At Cody's Books in Berkeley ...







Lots of old friends and new friends, like
blogger buddy Jen Robinson, showed up:

I love that your family joined in the fun. Hope the trip was great and I can't wait to hear about it.

That is so freaking cool I can't stand it! You guys should tour around in a big alpana-painted bus kinda like the Partridge family.

Except since we're Bengali it would have to include the extended family -- not just the nuclear one. Would my 22 first cousins, their spouses, and kids all fit into the Partridge-sized bus? Me thinks not, but maybe it's worth a try ...
