July Meeting

We are getting really spoiled. We have talked to several authors about their books. What a treat it was to talk to Liz Rosenberg. We were so privileged to get to talk to her about her first "adult" book, "Home Repair."

Liz has such an outgoing, charismatic personality. Now we know where so many of the personalities for her characters came from. After our phone call, we continued our discussion for about 30 more minutes. She gave us such insight into the characters that we couldn't stop talking about them. It makes you see them as "real" people. One thing that we have learned from the authors is that the characters really become their friends.

Liz, thank you so much for contacting us. It was such a pleasure to visit with you.

For next month, we have chosen an easy summer read, "The Beach House" by Jane Green. Enjoy and we will see everyone on August 4th.
