Paula Butturini, Author of Keeping the Feast

The paperback edition of Keeping the Feast was published Feb. 1, 2011. It's got a great new cover, and Penguin's sales representatives voted it the paperback Rep Pick for the winter season. Thanks for that! On May 1, 2011, the Polish translation of Keeping the Feast was published in Warsaw.
