Author Fan Club

I wanted to post about these wonderful authors.  I contacted these authors about  participating in this year's silent auction. I was not expecting anyone to contact me.  What a pleasant surprise, what I found in my inbox.  I would like to thank Dara Horn Anita Diamant, Chris Bojhalian, and Adriana Trigiani. They all agreed to donate their autograph books for our silent auction in January.

Our book club, which most of are members of Temple Emanu-El will be partaking in making a bookish basket for our event. Can't wait to see the finished product. I would like to see the person who wins this.

If any of you will be in the Myrtle Beach area in the third week in January 2011. Come on down, to ol'e South Carolina.

I was a great fan before, but now I am a even great fan after they agreed. I will be recommending to our book club that we should support these authors. Either by reading and discussing their books and having them on a conference call soon.

You may also go to my other blog to read the indepth post on my other blog.

Addendum: I happy and excited to add Joan Nathan to our list. Joan has written several Jewish cookbooks.  She is best known for her cookbook, Jewish Cooking in America.  She will be sending Quiches, Kugels, and Couscous: My Search for Jewish Cooking in France.  I would like to thank the publisher of Random House, Sara Eagle for donating a copy.

 Unbreakable, by Linda Hillenbrand the author of Seabiscuit. Has sent  a copy of her new book. It the story of a athlete and what happens when he is sent to Japan during WW11. I would like to thank, Sally Marvin the publisher of Random House for a copy. 
I would like to thank both of them to allow me to review these two books for my blog as well.
Thank you so much to all the authors that have donated books and the publishers and the author's representative. You don't know what a thrill it has been to me to recieve emails from everyone.  To me authors are the celebrities not musicians and actors. Sounds strange.  But like someone told me yesterday. I am a book nerd!!! What a great compliment.  Thank you all.
