Read a book and a blog, cupcake.

On a drizzly Saturday afternoon, I dragged my boyfriend Mike across the river for what was the cupcake event of the year – Grace Lin’s Birthday, Book & Boston Blogger Party! And sure enough when we arrive at Spark Craft Studio in Somerville, we were greeted by brightly frosted cupcakes – carrot, red velvet, and lemon to be deliciously specific.

Susan Sherman introduced me to Anna Alter. She is the illustrator of Pricilla and the Hollyhocks that is due for release next spring. Anna is also one of the Blue Rose Girls with Grace, Elaine Magliaro, Alvina Ling, Libby Koponen and Linda Wingerter. Each BRG wore a blue rose in her hair.

Mike and I bought raffle tickets with high hopes to win one of Grace’s prints. Neither of us won, but it was well worth the price of the ticket as all the money went to a good cause – the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I also managed to snag a goodie bag that contained a chocolate rat and an arc for Year of the Rat.

Kudos to Grace and the BRG for throwing a great party.
