January 17, 2008 -- Thursday evening

At a gallery on Hyde street, reading A Million Little Pieces, by James Frey.

When she was little she liked Nina, Nina the Ballerina, by Jane O'Connor and DyAnne DiSalvo-Ryan. She still has the book....though no longer takes ballet classes.

Her own book--it'd be a cookbook and, within it, a recipe for biscotti--her family makes a softer biscotti than most.

A book that's changed her life--she's a culinary student and the book would be a big blue book entitled Baking.
