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.”
“Life does find a way to create a balance somewhere between smiles and tears. And, like a pendulum’s swing, life seldom stays in one place. Life keeps on moving until, one day, it stops.”— Ralph Webster
A heartfelt THANK YOU to the Wine, Women, and Words Book Club for selecting A Smile in One Eye: a Tear in the Other as your book this month and inviting me to be part of this week’s meeting. Great exchange of thoughts and opinions – wonderful discussion.
Not a world tour, but a Smile in One Eye: a Tear in the Other is being noticed worldwide. This week we caught the attention of readers in India. Thank you Sreesha Divakaran and your book blog, Rain and a Book for spotlighting the book and including a summary and excerpt. Four continents in four weeks – North America, Australia, Europe, and now Asia!
