Crowds came early and braved the cold for a chance to have Martha Stewart sign a copy of her new book. " Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook." A real nice touch were the freshly baked giant chocolate chip cookies she had on
a table as a courtesy to her fans. They were from the Borders Cafe. No,she did not arrive early and bake them!
The event was at Borders Michigan Avenue store.
