Meet a bookclub for the homeless in WI


Here is Luis meeting with the Streets of Madison, a bookclub for the poor and homeless in Madison, WI. About 30 members read both The Devil's Highway and Into the Beautiful North. We drove up there to meet with them one morning last May. Just because you are struggling, doesn't mean you aren't hungry for literature and book talk. It's one of the most inspiring projects we've been part of and we're hoping to go back this summer and start a writing retreat with them.  You can -- and should -- follow their blog by clicking here.

Book club members have been some of my most enthusiastic and careful readers. I’m thrilled to share my work with you, answer your questions and tell you some of the stories behind the stories. This is our spot, just for us. Here, we can chat:  If I’m nearby, I’ll come and visit your club. Otherwise, we can Skype, talk over the phone or email. Sometimes, I’ll send surprises or hold contests.
