Reading Group Guides Newsletter

In the last two newsletters, I wrote about Skyping with authors. My newly formed neighborhood book group spoke with Lisa See via Skype on Wednesday night about THE ISLAND OF SEA WOMEN, and Melanie, who lives in Florida and edits our Word of Mouth and Sounding Off on Audio features on, also had a Skype chat with Lisa that she and her book group enjoyed immensely. I have been to many events where Lisa has presented through the years, but there was something very special and intimate about this evening where she shared feedback on both her research and writing process. I loved seeing how my fellow book group members asked smart questions that sparked lots of conversation. While we had explored the videos on Lisa’s website, this discussion really broadened our experience. It was such an informative evening.
