In 2004 Al Franken wrote in his book Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right, “no matter how dire the world situation is and the crises we face, people are always interested in lottery winners.” He was so right. It’s been 13 years and people are still interested in my story and all the details of how I won.
To my surprise I’m still be asked to give book talks. Yesterday I spoke at the Jewish Community Center in Aventura, FL. Unbeknownst to me the woman who introduced me was Miss Emily a preschool teacher of my children in the 1980s.
