A VISIT WITH THE VERO BEACH WOMEN’S CLUB

February 9, 2012 Uncategorized 0

This has been a great week despite the onslaught of rainy weather (and frizzy hair.) On Tuesday I was privileged to speak at the Vero Beach GFWC (General Federation of Women’s Clubs) and it was a  delight to revisit these wonderful women. I addressed this group two years ago and after I did a reading from “Cracks in the Sidewalk” many of the members read the book and were now ready with lots of questions about the story and characters. The most frequently asked question is always: What part of the story is true and which parts are fiction? It shocks people to learn that the character named JT in the book is portrayed as he actually was. He is indeed the character women love to hate (and justifiably so!)

I also shared a brief overview on “Life in the Land of IS…the Amazing Story of Lani Deauville, the world’s longest living Quadriplegic” which will be released in late February and much like me, the listeners were awed by the personal and professional achievements of Lani Deauville. One of the members mentioned that she had a brother-in-law who was also a quadriplegic and she wanted to get the book for him. “I think it will show him that all things are possible when you dig down and take hold of your own determination,” she said. I, of course, promised to let her know as soon as the book was available.

In all, in was a wonderful visit and I would like to thank Sars Dessureau for inviting me to speak to the Vero Group this month and again at the Sebastian GFWC on March 26th.

In keeping with my policy of giving back to the community, 10% of any book sales at the event is returned to the Club to support their many charitable endeavors.
