Book talk times three

I am fortunate to live in a place that has so many opportunities for book lovers. Last week was a particularly rich week with three author talks.

The first event was Jasper Fforde talking about his newest book. I haven’t read any of his books but my daughter loves them so we went together. He is a wonderful speaker and I do plan to read him one day.

The following night I played hookie from a meeting to hear Dani Shapiro. She was also talking about her most recent book. I have read a lot of her work and it is amazing how this story connects so many of the questions in her writing. She is also a good speaker.

I ended the week with an author event that I helped organize at church. Our pastor’s family knows the author of a book that had been recommended so we encouraged the congregation to read a book. Then the author agreed to come and talk about her book and her family’s journey. I read this book a few months ago and thoroughly enjoyed. This author is also a very good speaker.

The photo above has nothing to do with this post – just a little glimpse of what the day is looking like over here in the Pacific Northwest. Hope your day is much lovelier. Off to join Carole today.
