State of Wonder

We have had an amazing year thus far.

Our January meeting began with author Robert LeLeux stopping in on his way to New Orleans.  To hear him read from his new book The Living End was well...the living end! If you have a family member with Alzheimer's, Robert's book will lift you up and show you some of the blessings that are hiding.  And he brought his beautiful Mom with him!  Thank you for stopping in on such a rainy night.

February brought the Homecoming of Samuel Lake with a telephone visit with author Jenny Wingfield.  What a delight as we shared with how the story of Samuel Lake touched her and each of us.

In March, Meg Waite Clayton author of The Four Ms Bardwells visited with us via SKYPE just before leaving on her European tour.  We were hoping to win her contest for a vacation to California, but alas none of the SWLA PQ's will be going.

Now it's April and we are reading State of Wonder by Ann Patchett who has recently opened an independent book store in Nashville because there wasn't one.  Authors do amazing things!

Looking forward to seeing you next week at our April meeting!
