Many thanks to all who came out to celebrate the launch of All You Have to Do! It was a beautiful event at the Mattapan Branch of the Boston Public Library, with books sold by Roxbury's Frugal Bookstore, playlist created by Daren Graves, a slideshow of the inspiration and research behind the book, and cupcakes by Caked!
