More reading group excitement! In a couple of hours, I’m calling in to a group in Tennessee, with two more scheduled already for June–another call-in (not quite sure which state) and an in-person visit to a club in Lexington. If your reading group has chosen THE SISTERS, I’d be happy to arrange to chat by speaker phone or Skype–or to come to your meeting if you’re within a 45-minute drive from Richmond, KY.

Love These Reading Groups!
Laurel County Public Library
I’m really looking forward to this Tuesday, May 22, when I’ll visit the Laurel County Public Library to discuss the inspiration for The Sisters. Copies of the book will be available for sale, and I’ll be delighted to sign copies. The event begins at 6:30. Click here for more details!
Kentucky Women’s Book Festival
I’m looking forward to speaking next Saturday, May 19, at the Kentucky Women’s Book Festival at the University of Louisville. The subject? Researching the Ordinary in Extraordinary Ways–a talk that draws on my sometimes bizarre but always exciting methods of research for my novel The Sisters. Click here for the full agenda!
Great News from Australia and New Zealand
So far The Sisters has been wonderfully well-received in Australia and New Zealand, with good reviews in New Zealand’s Sunday Star Times, The Sydney Morning Herald and Vogue Australia. I haven’t been able to locate those reviews online as yet, but you can click the link for a terrific review from The Hoopla Literary Society.
I’m grateful to the entire team at Text Publishing for taking such good care of my book and for working so hard to get the word out on The Sisters.
