Author Event- Jessica Brockmole
Last night I attended an author event with Jessica Brockmole, the author of Letters from Skye, at Schuler Books. Letters from Skye is getting a lot of buzz and is an outstanding debut novel. I had just finished the novel a couple days ago and happened to see she was on a book tour so jumped at the chance to make the drive over.
The event itself was very nice. Jessica was very gracious and began the event by providing some background on the book itself and her reasons for writing it. She shared insights into the characters in the novel, as well as some historical details that informed the writing and some humorous anecdotes as well. She also read from several of the letters in the book at important moments in the story. She then opened the floor to questions. Afterwards she signed books and met fans.
I highly recommend Letters from Skye for anyone who loves a good story about love and the human spirit. This book is getting a lot of praise and deservedly so. My review is here.
Thanks to Jessica Brockmole and Schuler Books for hosting this event.
