Our Gathering on May 8th, 2012
Hey Ladies! This month we met at an exciting library in Ypsilanti. Figured it was time to meet somewhere closer to those ladies that have to travel every month to our side of the city. We had a fun night as new and old friends gathered. Using Skype to connect with an author is the way to go. After a bit of technical difficulty we finally connected with Sarah Pekkanen, the author of this months book, "These Girls". The books main theme was on friendship and we relished the idea of speaking on such a huge topic. Sarah was so amusing. She shared stories of her writing career and about friends that she is blessed to have in her life. We laughed as she told us she was hiding out in the basement so her family would let her alone for a few minutes to chat with us. Then we chatted with Lori, who just took an exciting trip to New York City a last month. The "friends" in the book lived in New York and Lori had some terrific photos and stories to tell us about her trip. She is a terrific speaker and all agreed that we could have sat and listened to her all night. We are capitalizing on the friendship theme by reading more books on friendship in the next few months. Get started on reading "Friendship Bread" by Darien Gee. Our next gathering (we like this word instead of "meeting" as that sounds so boring!) will be filled with many baked goods from each member who is going to partake in the friendship bread recipes this month. Until next month...Happy Reading!
