4:00 PM on a Friday afternoon can be a difficult time for me to watch an event. I would so very much appreciate your taping this interview with Riva, just in case I can't make it. Also I often like to watch twice! Thanks.

Riva and I have talked on the phone, and in emails. She is a wonderful author, and a type 1 diabetic.
