Kate Jacobs- Book Club "Visit"

Last night my online book club, The Page Turners had a special guest. Kate Jacobs logged on to yahoo messenger and join in for an online books discussion of Knit Two.Link

It was such a great experience for our club The Page Turners. We all had so much to talk about. It ended up being 18 pages of text! Wow! Kate knows and loves her characters in the book. It was awesome to be able to ask questions about the characters, as well as what inspired different plots within the book. It was a wonderful (and exciting) time talking to a wonderful group of women about another wonderful group of women. We all feel really connected to the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club.

It was nice talking to Kate about the characters because it confirms that the book is not just fluff and puff. The characters in the book are complex and they undergo changes and suffer loss just like the real world mothers, daughters, sister, and friends.

Once again the Book is: Knit Two, by Kate Jacobs. (click her for chapter one excerpt)

Thank you Kate Jacobs.

How wonderful that your group was able to converse with her this way. I LOVE the internet and don't know how we lived with out it before.

I want to read these books. They have been on my list for a long time.
