Hi, welcome to Susan's Literary Cafe:
My name is Susan. I live in Myrtle Beach, SC . I am originally from Ramsey, NJ. I have also lived in Miami, Fl. and Livonia, Mich, and Denver, Colorado. I am a retired nurse that worked in the Med- Surgical floors, I also specialized in Psychiatry at the VA Hospital in Miami.
I became a stay at home mom when my son was born until recently. I decided I wanted to get back in the work force. But, not in nursing. Nursing is not what it used to be with " hands-on-care". I decided to go back to school, and try my hand with medical coding.
Between work and school you would think I would say enough. Well, you don't know me well enough.
All my friends know me as the " Book Diva". Because I have my hands in everything literary. I organized two book clubs.
I also have two book blogs, one secular the other Jewish literary fiction. I started to blog to keep a record of my reading experience. But also to share information for my book club. I did not know the possibilities that would open up because of the book blog.
I organize literary book events in our area of Myrtle Beach with local university professors from Coastal Carolina University, as our guest speakers.
In past years, I organized the Jewish Grand Strand Reads( which is my passion). In previous years it was only me organizing the Community Read. Now, I am proud to say it is being sponsored, and supported by the Jewish community of the Grand Strand, and Hadassah. I organized these events not for monetary gain. But to share with others my love of reading.
