Author Shout Out: Come hear me read “The Book Just Loved Me.”
AUTHOR SHOUT OUT AT SCHLAFLY BRANCH LIBRARY, ST. LOUIS, CORNER OF LINDEL/EUCLID, SATURDAY MARCH 7, 3-5 PM
I join many of my sister St. Louis writer-friends as we each present our books for a 5-minute reading. I’ll be reading an essay called, “The Book Just Loved Me.” The full length of this essay is around 2,000 words. Worry least. I’ve adapted it for this occasion to 5 minutes. It tells about my “wild book happiness” when I first became a published author with “Sightlines: A Poet’s Diary.” We’ve recently made our audio book “Sightlines: A Family Love Story in Poetry and Music.” Tell you more about that one, later.
Meet local authors. Appreciate the vision of hometown talent, vision and voice. Join us as we meet these self-published authors and hear them “shout out” their work.

Crymes, Dr. Jose Sayyed-Fleming, Sheneatha Frison, Linda Darnece Jones, Chris and Tom McClarren, Sean Muhammad, Janet Riehl, Denita Robinson, Linda Jo Smith, Denise Sumotzy, Tioliendo, and Sheila Young.
