It's impossible to say what your favorite book is. But give one or two.

Murakami's Wind Up Bird Chronicles, Peter Pan, anything by Virginia Woolf because she is a genius, and I love a good torrid memoir.

If you weren't reading a book, what would you be doing?

Watching a movie, playing with my kid, playing volleyball, or usually, mostly chanting and attending Buddhist meetings here in Madison.

For extra bonus points, share your favorite 80s memory.

Hmm.. beyond black parachute pants and really awesome alligator shirts, I'd have to say going to movies. The 80s had some greats... standing in line with my sister for an hour to see Indiana Jones at the mall was a great one.


My name is Laura. I'm a mother of a 7 year old and a writer who currently writes for the Isthmus and Madison Magazine. Viva la books!

What Laura J. is saying about this Meetup Group

As the facilitator, I'd like to thank Edmund and Becky for their reviews and state for the record that neither received any form of payment for their support. Finally, I would also like to mention that I personally feel that Edmund is "rad" (great 80s word) and Becky is "really great." Thanks for attending COT80s.
