Oct. 8

Last night I attended a fun talk by debut author Marilyn Brant (According to Jane). She spoke about how each of us has the spark and the talent to pursue our dreams-whatever that may be. There was coffee and tea, apple cidar and so many cookies and goodies and chocolates.
Marilyn claims she is no public speaker but her talk was warm and funny and heartfelt. There were 35 to 40 people there. And even when she was hit with a question about the ethos of Jane Austen...(someone was trying to sound smart), she answered it with dignity and honesty and a bit of humor.
I don't get out much, but I'm glad I went. It was a great time. If you get a chance, read her book.


  1. Wish I'd been there too! (and not just for the chocolates!):)

  2. Well, glad you got out of the house for this one!
