Read to learn what you like in memoir…

I love my memoir book club.  We are a small but mighty group of women who love being together!  (hey…why am I the shortest one in the picture?).

This past month we read Diane Keaton’s book about her life and we all agreed that the writing wasn’t the greatest and even though we all loved Diane Keaton, if she wasn’t famous her book would not be read.

The beauty of reading memoir in particular is that you get to see how others have written their life and see what it is that  you like.  Our first book that we read as a group was called Take the Long Way Home by Gail Caldwell, now that is great writing! 

I am blessed to be surrounded by beautiful, smart and funny women!

If you don’t belong to a book group, start one…it is great fun!
