Our night with Janet

As we thoroughly enjoyed Moonlight in Odessa, we were all very much looking forward to our event with Janet Skeslien Charles tonight and I'm happy to report that it was a great event! Janet started the reading with a quiz for our rapt audience about mail order brides and I dare say, we learned quite a few interesting things. For example, I didn't know that mail order brides were already present in the US as early as 1620 or that they were originally called Tobacco Brides!

Check out our audience who more than did well in the quiz...

After the fun quiz, Janet explained to us the process she underwent to bring her book to the public. And then she read a few choice passages from her book. It was quite a treat to hear Daria come to life through her reading and it was like rediscovering the pleasures of the book all over again!

Of course after the reading we all queued to have Janet sign our copies of her book!
