June 24, 2017, I was invited to give a talk about my newest book, Dearest Minnie. I used my computer and their large screen to show slides of the postcards when the fleet visited California, specifically San Francisco Bay Area. My brother and sister-in-law graciously drove me to the event as I didn’t have a clue how to find my way in San Francisco.
What a fun and attentive group of people. Their meetings are held at Fort Mason in San Francisco on the fourth Saturday of each month. For more details visit their web site.
I was surprised to see my son and his girl friend walk into the meeting room to hear my talk along with her parents and her visiting grandparents whom I had never met; a real thrill for me. My son made reservations at a restaurant at Fisherman’s Wharf for all of us. What a delightful afternoon meeting new people, signing and selling books and being with my family. Thank you all!
