Winter Readaround

This morning's monthly meeting of the Women's Writing Circle was again a pleasure and a revelation.  Arleen read a story about a diabolical gardener who murders a fat, bossy woman and hangs her body for decoration in a tree at Longwood Gardens.  Barbara read an excerpt from her novel about faith and renewal after the failed lynching of an African American man in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.  For my part, it was Chapter 4 from my memoir, Again In a Heartbeat  - describing how I ended up popping the question to my husband!

Wellington Square Bookshop in the Eagleview Town Center offered a cozy atmosphere for the readaround on a cold winter's morning, giving us our very own corner tucked away by the rare and used book collection. There we were joined by a skeletal muse who listens with much interest and reminds us that it is the journey not the destination that matters!

Great photo of the skeleton! All of these works in progress sound so intriguing ... especially the Longwood Gardens one.

Thanks, Melissa. How did you find us?

Happy Valentine's Day Eve.
