The 2017 Utah Readers Luncheon – Recap

This Week’s Quote:
“The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.” – Ursula K. Le Guin

This past weekend it was my honor and privilege to share a table with authors Judy Baker and Mary Martinez at the 3rd Annual Utah Readers Luncheon. We had a blast visiting and giving away prizes. And the guest speakers, RaeAnne Thayne and Jill Shalvis were both delightful and inspiring.

Mark your calendar for October 13, 2018. We’d love to have you join us next year!
