Book Launch Party Draws a Crowd

May 1, 2015

Thanks to everyone who came to the launch party for literary historical novel Up the Hill to Home, held at the Hotel Monaco in D.C.’s Penn Quarter on 29 March, just a day after the book’s official release. Beautiful weather out in the courtyard set a perfect stage for celebrating the big milestone. The Hotel Monaco, with its stunning architecture by two of federal Washington’s most esteemed architects, Robert Mills and Thomas U. Walter, was originally the General Post Office, which plays a pivotal role in the book. The courtyard was where the horses and wagons used for mail delivery were originally stabled. Now it just makes a great spot for a party.

Congratulations to Sam Gordon, the lucky winner of the drawing for a signed hardcover edition of Up the Hill to Home. Sam–who did not need to be present to win–was eligible for the drawing because he had signed up for Jenny’s email list. Stay tuned for the start of another quarterly drawing; everyone on the mailing list is eligible to win, so sign up today!

    Hi Jennifer ,
    I enjoyed reading your book so much. The history was amazing. The story was near and dear to me because I also am from a large catholic family from the Washington area. Your writing was great, thank you!
    My aunt was married at one time to Tom Voith. Their children are my cousins as well as yours. I loved the story even more so knowing that this was their family history!
    Thanks for putting it into words for all to enjoy.

      Dawn – Thanks so much! I always say that if we can just get every Voith relative to read the book, it will be a run-away bestseller!
