Great to see some of you on Tuesday night out at Cornerstone Brewery in Madison. It was a pleasure to have a new member with us for a pretty memorable Meet Up. Author Karen Tintori made time in her busy schedule to join us on a conference call to discuss and review 'Trapped: The 1909 Cherry Mine Disaster'! For over 30 minutes, we asked Karen several questions pertaining to her family's historical luck, the comparison of mines today vs. 1909, comparative local disasters, and more. It was a great honor to have her with us, while we enjoyed local beer & food on Cornerstone's back patio.
For the our next book that was selected at random, we're sticking with the historical tragedy genre. 'In the Heart of the Sea' by Nathanial Philbrick has not only won several awards, it has an extremely high review on Amazon & Goodreads, sat at the #1 spot in the NY Times Bestseller's List for Independent Nonfiction books back in 2001, and came highly recommended by a Diva's Meet Up regular. Copies can be borrowed from Morley, Mentor and the Cleveland Libraries or purchased from Amazon.com (paperback, Kindle).
Our late July/early August Meet Up will take us back to a favorite summer spot; Wade Oval. On Wednesday, August 1st, we'll plan on meeting with picnic blankets, chairs, snacks and drinks to listen to Carlos Jones with friends and any family members, while we discuss 'In the Heart of the Sea'. These summer concerts are free of charge, minus the horrendous parking you'll endure in the area :/ If I have to dash out of town for work, I'll hand this Meet Up date off to my trust co-organizer and regular members.
Enjoy the new book and see you in a few weeks!
