I was lucky enough to have squeezed in dinner with Lauren Kate on Friday night, despite the busy schedule for her National Book Store Passion tour. The Manila event kicked off yesterday at Glorietta 5, and Lauren is having another one today at Ayala Center Cebu.
I had a great interview with Lauren last year, and thought it would be lovely to catch up with her after a whirlwind six months (she’s been on tour, mostly). But traffic was horrible last night (I stressed all the way to the interview) and I could see Lauren had a full weekend ahead of her (and a lot of books to sign!), so I mainly ran through the questions that had been plaguing me as I was reading Torment and Passion, which I finished overnight in time for meeting Lauren!
