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.

I have been raving about this since I read it to all my bookish friends. I was so amazed that I have not noticed her work before this time.

 I love the story, it is very different than anything I have ever read. I don't want to tell you too much or it would be spoil the book. I will just say I loved it.   If you like contemporary stories with familial situation than this book is for you. 

I just finished Labor Day, penned by the same author.  I was hoping Good Daughters would  be as good as Labo…
