QUEEN OF THE ROAD, by Doreen Orion, was nominated by Amy. Unfortunately she had to miss this meeting due to unexpected company. We were excited that the author was planning to call in though!
Here are some comments from a few of the gals who did attend.
Cyndi: I had a really enjoyed both listening to Doreen and everyone's thoughts on the book. ... It was interesting to see that Doreen wasn't what I thought she would be.A big thank you goes to Doreen for calling in and for sending personalized book plates to the group. As we've learned in the past, interacting with an author always bring a great appreciation of the book.
Kara: We all had a great time! The food was delicious & company was great. Think we all thought Doreen could've been a little less dry...we were expecting Fran Drescher as Miss Marlene suggested and she just wasn't. Doreen was very nice and polite ... answered our questions ... and we had a lot of thoughtful reflection on not being so materialistic as well. Steph & Stori were amazing hosts and I think next time we'll all opt for a bath in their new spa bathroom...
Melissa: Doreen was lovely ... I think we all understood the book more after talking with her. We got through most of the questions on the discussion guide sheet, & it was a great meeting.
Our next book is LITTLE BEE, by Chris Cleave, to be discussed on June 14th.
