Thank you so much ! I have not done this before but I have always thought it would be fun to skype into a book group! OR I am going to Toronto October 18th to 21st to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent psychiatry annual meeting SO I would love to meet your book group if it worked out or do any kind of reading in Toronto! I could do it Wed or Thursday.. I just did a reading at Harvard Book Store and am doing one at the Depression Bipolar support association in October. If there are any organizations in Toronto like that who may be interested I am so committed to outreach . Also I am staying at a super sterile hotel where the conference is I think the Hilton and I would love to stay in a smaller more homey spot like a B and B but everybody tells me that there aren't spots like that. If this is too much for the group to listen to all my questions my email is email@example.com
Thank you , this is my first time ever as a newbie to being in a group on line so I am just sharing I am excited that you heard me all the way in Canada, that you write short stories and that now I have one friend/acquaintance in Toronto!
