The Friday Wrap: The Takeaway, The Chicago Tribune, USA TODAY, and Outside Magazine

Please join us May 19 @1pm at Bethlehem Public Library in Bethlehem, NH for our next book signing event!

It's been another great week for Up: A Mother and Daughter's Peakbagging Adventure!

USA TODAY listed UP as one of the top ten books for Mother's Day!

The Chicago Tribune posted a great article on UP; look for this article in the newspaper this weekend.

Katie Arnold of Outside Magazine wrote a lengthy and very positive piece regarding UP.

Also -- Alex and I did our first live radio interview this morning! We were guests on the national program, "The Takeaway." Here's the link to our segment -- click "listen," then scroll down. We're listed in the pop-up player. We had such a good time! Many thanks to John Hockenberry for having us on the show.

I recorded this video of Alex just before we went on air:

Here are some pictures from this morning:

Waiting to go on.

Have a great weekend, folks! Look for us in The Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe (North), The Concord Monitor, The Union Leader, The Maine Sunday Telegram, and The Sunday News (Lancaster, PA).

And, of course...

Eat lots of chocolate!

I am 8 months pregnant with a girl we had already decided to name Alex. I saw your book and had to have it being a hiker! Thanks for sharing your stories with us, we are inspired. I can't wait until our little one is ready to hike the trails of idaho with us.

Hi there -- Alex, what a great name! :) Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Idaho -- I hear that's a beautiful state. I look forward to seeing it when we attempt Borah Peak.

Enjoy your little one. The best years of your life are ahead of you.
