Interesting afternoon at North Carolina’s Camden County Library discussing A Smile in One Eye: A Tear in the Other! Thank you to both the Camden Book Lovers and the Wine, Women and Books book clubs for organizing – and to the library staff for opening up the program to the public. Hope we can meet again at your wonderful facility and do a program on One More Moon!
“I can’t recite the chronology or elaborate on the facts. I can’t explain the reasons or defend how we lived our lives. What I can tell you is how the events of 1933 sowed the seeds that fundamentally changed our future, that there was little hand-wringing or emotion, that circumstances were beyond control, that there was no recourse or appeal. I can tell you that events were incremental, that the unbelievable became the believable and, ultimately, the normal.”
