On June 19, I talked with Joan Peceimer at the San Mateo County Fair. Joan has worked tirelessly for the Friends of the Belmont Library for many years, serving at one time as their president. During this time, she has recruited many to speak at authors’ nights at the Belmont Library (located at 1110 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont). They include such award-winners as Elizabeth George and Michael Chabon, and, in a special event held in Ralston Hall on the Notre Dame de Namur University campus, Joan arranged for the renowned Isabel Allende to speak to a large crowd. In the fall, Joan is planning to hold an event that will feature local Belmont authors.
On June 24, I was interviewed by Kim McMillon of The Writers Sanctuary Blog Talk Radio. Kim is a lively interviewer who asked many challenging questions about my book, Straight Down the Middle.
