Book launch party for authors Debra Ollivier and Karen Karbo. They join publicist Kim Dower and me in conversation about their books, writing nonfiction and to celebrate their book launch.

Her essays, articles, and reviews have appeared in the New York Times, Outside, Elle, Vogue, More, and She lives in Portland, Oregon, where she is still hunting for a piece of vintage Chanel couture.
