Rave Reviews About Jane Pauley
You were a hit, as I knew you would be! Everyone loved the style of your presentation....it is such a refreshing change from the usual "behind the podium" speech, and really makes the audience feel a part of the conversation. Thanks also for signing the 700 bookplates....our ladies were thrilled to have the opportunity to purchase your book and to have a personally signed bookplate. Your graciousness as you needed to depart...stopping to talk to those still in line, shaking hands with them, and expressing your regret at needing to leave made you about 600 instant friends.
