Dear Larry,

I wanted to write and express my sincere gratitude to you for moderating my event in Long Island this week. I have to admit, I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect. But the evening exceeded my expectations and the audience turnout and your thoughtful questions really moved me. In fact, I even write about that night in an “I’ve Been Thinking… essay that I’ll share in my Sunday Paper newsletter this Sunday. You can sign up on my website to receive it.

I appreciate your support of my new book and hope to see you on Long Island again in the future.

All the best,

Maria Shriver
