I reviewed it glowingly back in the Julianís America days.

You knew this was coming....

Everytime Jules references the JA days of yore, I am reminded that I once purchased a coffee table book memorializing the JA days of yore that never arrived.  I doubt The Brand would let it replace her Humans of New York on the coffee table, but it stood a pretty good chance of replacing my Girls of Bond coffee table book.

As you were...

It was a handmade art piece based around a single JA review (in your case The Hills), not a coffee table book. And I found it! And then saw you a few months later but forget to bring it! Then lost it again in a move!

Wild to me that a major American author was just traveling around Argentina talking to high schools. How did this happen??

Yeah me too


It was the American Community School... maybe he did a tour of the ACS in South America or maybe he was visiting Buenos Aires and knew someone who worked at the school


No idea why he showed up..

All I remember is we were ushered in to the auditorium and he spoke for an hour or something..it was unusual and random

A smart guy, even if some of his views were skewed.
