I live in a small town in the Sierra foothills. I was out doing some shopping and stopped in to several of my favorite stores. Since it's such a small place, we all know each other, and these folks know I moderate the CapRadio Reads book club. In three different stores, people came up to me to say how much they loved A Master Plan for Rescue by our November guest, Janis Cooke Newman. As always, when we talk about books, a long conversation ensued, and also, as always, I learned something.
First, I learned that driving 100 miles to see Donna Apidone and Janis Cooke Newman in conversation on November 10 at 6pm at Capital Public Radio is not too far at all. Yay for my friends and book lovers.
Second, I learned that Anthony Doerr, who wrote All The Light We Cannot See, has another book we might enjoy about Rome. This came up in the conversation because we all see similarities between his book and A Master Plan for Rescue.
Third, I was reminded of something I already know: Book people are the best! We just can't stop talking about books that have really moved us.
I hope you will join us for the event with Janis Cooke Newman on November 10th. If 100 miles isn't too far, I'm sure you can get there. We'll have the usual delicious wine and snacks, and it goes without saying we'll have "The Cookie.”
