I am just back from the New England Book Festival held at the Omni Parker Hotel in Boston. It was a day of meeting new author, discussion groups and panel groups. It was extremely interesting and enlightening. The awards were held in the room President John F. Kennedy announced his presidential run. It gave me chills to be in that room and the history in that room. As we received our awards we were asked to give a speech on what inspired you to write your book. Known as the woman who moves her hand when she speaks, I made the choice to illustrate my aphasia – unexpectedly I received a standing ovation. It was an evening filled with publishing passion, vision, humility. courage and spectacular plans for the future.
During the day I mat Alicia Young author of “Savvy Girl’s Guide to GRACE” she was a wonderful person and wrote a “Charming and lighthearted” book according to Sandra Day O’Connor, US Supreme Court Justice (ret). I am reading it now and totally agree.
