Gilded’s Launch Party Recap!

bannerYesterday we had GILDED’s launch party and it was even better than I could possibly hope for. So many friends, co-workers, and students attended to show their support of the book. I was in awe.

The launch party was a celebration of everything that it took to get published as well as a way to share my excitement with the people I care about.

Christy speakingA big thank you to the Windermere Library for allowing me to have the launch there. They even invited me back for my next launch in September! My family helped me set up and decorate the library with Korean decorations.

The whole event couldn’t have gone better. I felt so blessed and grateful to everyone who showed up. Thank you all for your support and for making this day special for me!
