A Broom of One's Own by Nancy Peacock - October Book Club Discussion

Many of us read fiction like writers, so this group is especially attuned to aspiring writers who want to know more about the craft of writing. The books we chose are all available in paperback and can be found at the library in print or audio.  This month's book:

"Author Appearance"

For the twice-published novelist, reading an article about herself in the National Enquirer—under the headline "Here's One for the Books: Cleaning Lady Is an Acclaimed Author"—was more than a shock. It was an inspiration.

In A Broom of One's Own, Nancy Peacock, whose first novel was selected by the New York Times as a Notable Book of the Year, explores her the meaning of making a living with warmth, wit, and candor. Peacock's book provides valuable insights and advice on motivation, craft, and criticism while offering hilarious anecdotes about the houses she cleans.

    What a fabulous turnout! We all enjoyed Nancy reading from her book, "Broom of One's Own" as well as the writing prompt we completed and shared. Sorry to anyone who missed it! See you at the next book club: Fri. Nov 16th for the discussion of "Room."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
