From the 2011 Debs…
If you’re in Denver, Deb Eleanor will be at the Lighthouse Writer’s Workshop Salon: The Final Word (on writing endings) on Tuesday, June 7th at 7:30 pm with Mario Acevedo, William Haywood Henderson, and David Wrobleswki. Lighthouse events are always a great time!
Deb Tawna is giving away an Advance Reading Copy of Making Waves to someone who does a creative job with a photo-reenactment of the book’s cover. You can read all about it here.
Deb Kim had a small dinner party last night, and included the priest whose photo is in her book. Do you think I put my foot (or entire) leg in my mouth THIS TIME?
Deb Sarah is thrilled that her novel, The Violets of March, was chosen as a summer reading pick in the June issue of Coastal Living magazine!
Deb Dish — The classic book I’ve always meant to read…
I of course drew a blank when I saw this topic (it’s really a good thing I don’t take tests anymore — the deer-in-the-headlights thing is far too prevalent), so I went to Amazon.com’s Must Read Classics list. I saw Don Quixote, which is indeed a book I always meant to read, mainly because I’ve listened to the Original Broadway Production Soundtrack to Man of LaMancha just shy of a million times. I love the music, and have always wanted to dive into the original text… but have yet to get around to it. Clearly this is one more thing to add to my TBR pile…
I’ve actually read most of the classics I want to, but seeing Paula McLain talk about The Paris Wife at the Gaithersburg Book Festival pointed out to me that I’ve never read any Hemingway. I actually don’t think I ever had any interest, but now I do!
Deb Kim Please don’t tell Deb Eleanor, but I’m am Shakespeare deficient. My English elective senior year was Advertising – I did not opt for Shakespeare. I attribute that to having taken three years of Latin and just poopin out on language for a bit!
Hemingway, all the way. Um, that sounds funny! I started reading Moveable Feast, and then the kids got the better of me, but I do intend to finish it, maybe sometime this YEAR!
I was a Lit major in college, and I’ve also been a part of a book club for over 10 years. You would think that between those two things, I probably would have read War and Peace at some point, but nope. I never have. Maybe one of these days…
