16 Candles, 140 Characters: Molly Ringwald At The Miami Book Fair
There's a lot of swooning to be done when a well-known Brat Packer decides to spend part of her day reading to you from her new book When it Happens to You. Here are just a few of the many endearing comments we've spotted on the web today about Molly Ringwald:
"The audience releases a collective groan when the presenter announces that Molly Ringwald will only be signing books following her reading. No DVDs, posters, or other memorabilia." - Ed Lavin
"I look up, and there is MOLLY RINGWALD. She ate fruit, and texted on her telephone. ...I walked up to her and introduced myself and told her how much I admired her work. And to be honest, I haven't read her stuff. But I loved Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles. Oh, and I snapped a photo from across the room, because Ed wanted one, but was too shy." - Jan Becker
"As a child of the eighties, I find it awesome that I an sitting across the room from Molly Ringwald in the authors hospitality suite." - Ed Lavin
"OH MY GOD. Molly Ringwald just sat down next to me. I need some selling salts." - Jan Becker
Forever girl crushing on Molly Ringwald... #truth
