Hi Bedford Book Club.

I'm honored you're thinking of reading my book and just wanted to let you know that I'll happily phone in so we can chat (almost in person) about the book, life, Dilly Bars!

Interesting little tidbit -- I actually wrote Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen while living in California.

Whatever you choose, happy reading!

Thanks for your kind offer. We've never discussed a book directly with an author before. This would be exciting!

We should know what our plan is after Sunday and will get in touch with you.

Thanks for stopping by our blog.

Best wishes,

Hi, everyone. Just to let you know, I've been in touch with Sherry and would be delighted to participate in a discussion of MATRIMONY, which is something that I've been doing with a lot of book groups recently. I also have a special holiday offer out to book groups of one free signed copy of MATRIMONY to a book group if they choose to discuss MATRIMONY. In any case, you have a fine list of possible books here, so you can't go wrong.

Hey everyone,

I just added "The Middle Place" by Kelly Corrigan to our list because I just found out that it will be released in paperback next week.

If you want to read about this book, especially reviews from real people click here. I, too, give this memoir a five star rating.
