Isn’t this a lovely photo? I took it the last time I went to Cuba in 1999. This is my desktop image at work.
I’m very excited about visiting a local book club group soon; they have been meeting together for 15 years and I am honored to have my book selected for their March discussion. I have already visited with a handful of book clubs and it is always so rewarding. Some groups have members prepare questions or comments to add to their discusson. Sometimes, it can be informal and free-flowing. Either way, I thoroughly enjoy being with readers–of any books, not just mine! I guess that’s why I enjoy teaching literature; I love to talk with readers about books we have in common.
So, if you are a member of a book club in Central Florida, I’m happy to meet with your group. If you are located in South Florida, I can arrange to visit there too since I go to Miami fairly often. Just give me a holler by posting here or check the Calendar of Events tab for my contact info.
I’ll report back on my experience at the book club.
