As many of you know, I love to listen to other authors speak and it helps me with my own writing. I am so pleased that Books a Million at the Strip in North Canton, Ohio, is featuring Delia Owens on February 20th, 2019 from 6-8 PM.
My book club really is fantastic and forces me to read books outside of my comfort zone. Our selection for February was Delia Owen’s book “Where the Crawdads Sing.” I knew nothing about this author except her book was number 1 bestseller on the New York Times Bestseller list!
Any reader would find something wonderful about this book. Her description is unbelievable. She and her husband lived in Africa for many years and the story is about a young girl called the “Marsh Girl” who was forced to live on her own after being deserted by her family. The author takes you away to the marshes in North Carolina and teaches you so much about wildlife. The characterization is incredible and you feel like you know the people in the book. Finally there is an intriguing mystery when someone is killed and a twist at the end of the book that will keep you gasping.
If you have a chance to read this book – please do it. And know how fortunate we are to have her in our back yard! There is a charge but you receive her book! If you cannot go, I will be following up after I hear her program! Contact BAM for more details!
