She’ll also be discussing youth sports with best-selling author of #hockeystrong, Erika Robuck. Throughout the week, she’ll be taking art selfies, talking about her obsession with all things, Hamilton, and celebrating the fact that wine and books go so well together (#booksandbottles). Oh yes, and she’ll be giving things away too. Even Books!
