Book Club Night

Last night my book club met for our monthly meeting. The book we read was Stiff, the curious lives of human cadavers, by Mary Roach. I was the host, so I took the liberty of placing a book-themed centerpiece on the finger-food table.

The old gal had spent the past few years packed away in a closet.

We created her several years ago for a Halloween decoration, and she hasn't had many excuses to leave her closet since then.

I think she was glad to get out and about  for a night.

The book was extremely interesting, if a little nauseating at times, but I would recommend it to the curious.

And also for the curious, if you'd like instructions for creating your own mummy, visit this post on my other blog.

Farmers' market book signing

I attended a book signing yesterday, sponsored by the Akron Manuscript Club, the oldest writing group in Akron at almost 80 years old.

It was hard to sit at the table the whole time and not walk around the farmers' market where the signing took place.

I did manage to step away a couple of times to make a few purchases. I bought home baked cookies and lemon-blueberry scones, honey-blueberry jam, and a tie-dyed T-shirt, the proceeds of which are going toward a high schooler's trip to China with the Confucius Institute.

Needless to say, I spent more than I made selling books : ) But that's not hard for me to do at a venue like this.
