Another Marvelous Book Club Discussion About THE ART OF FLOATING

Earlier this week, I had a terrific discussion about THE ART OF FLOATING with another marvelous book club! The host, Maria, put together a delicious spread (beach themed, of course)! And offered a perfect wine for the occasion (Plum Island wine, to honor the setting of THE ART OF FLOATING).

Since most of the book clubs I’ve met with have been made up of women, it was fun and informative to have a couple of men in this conversation. All in the book club were smart, thoughtful readers with great senses of humor. Thanks for hosting me!

Mojo Monday: Ann Patchett’s Spontaneous Speech

It’s Mojo Monday, and as always, I’ve got a little something-something to lift your creative spirits, buoy you up, help you get your mojo on, and nudge (or better yet, catapult) you into writerhead.


New York Times bestselling author Ann Patchett recently opened Parnassus Books, an independent bookstore in Nashville, Tennessee. Like most writers, Patchett is wildly passionate about books, bookstores, words, sentences, readers, writers, etc. Check out her spontaneous speech on opening night and get inspired:
