 Ann Patchett reading event for her newest book, This is a Story of a Happy Marriage

Enjoyed lunch at Rakestraw Bookstore to hear Ann Patchett talk about her anthology, This is a Story of a Happy Marriage. She is a skilled writer and engaging speaker. I’ve read all her books and it’s hard to choose a favorite; they are all terrific.

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.

  1. Lucky you. Our bookstores in Little Rock make no effort to draw authors in for readings. I’ve asked managers at both the B&N stores as well as the independent stores and they all say the same thing, ‘The public won’t turn out.’ I don’t have anything to compare the numbers. I never had problems getting authors or the public during the time I was a book buyer at B&N up and down the East Coast. It’s almost if the book stores here believe everyone is illiterate.
