At Home with Books hosts Saturday Snapshot.
Today's picture is book-related, so it's perfect for posting on my book blog!
On Thursday evening, two neighbors/friends and I went out to dinner (Spanish tapas - yum!) and then to hear Geraldine Brooks speak. Brooks is one of my all-time favorite authors. I have read all of her novels - Year of Wonders, March, People of the Book, and Caleb's Crossing - and loved every one of them. She has an extraordinary talent for taking some intriguing historical fact and building an engrossing fictional story around it to fit the known facts. Most amazing of all, this author who is so adept at writing about American history is actually from Australia!
The talk was wonderful - she was very entertaining and has a great sense of humor. Here's a photo of her signing books afterward:
If you ever have a chance to hear her speak, I highly recommend it. And definitely read her novels, if you haven't already!
Hope you are enjoying the weekend!
