The members of the Merida Writers’ Group are very content today… thanks to our friends Fran Greig, Jacquie Szorady and Karen Haslam. These three lovely ladies hosted our first-ever book signing at Fran’s condo in Chicxulub.
Our Yucatan, an anthology of short stories about our adoptive home, was published by Hamaca Press late last year. But with the Holiday Season, traveling , out-of-town company, etc, etc… we weren’t been able to agree on the right day to hold an event. We’re so grateful to Fran for cornering us at the January IWC meeting and locking down a date.
Not all ten writers who contributed to “Our Yucatan” were able to attend, but there were eight of us, which made for a good showing. We each read from our stories and took questions. It was exciting to meet our readers and share our love of reading and writing.
Every social occasion in Mexico ALWAYS includes food, flowers and fun… Fran & Friends certainly provided all three. We enjoyed ourselves so very much. ¡Muchas Gracias!
If you missed the event yesterday, you can buy a copy at the Merida English Library on Calle 53 between 66 and 68. You can also contact our group directly for a copy of Our Yucatan: firstname.lastname@example.org As well, you can purchase the Kindle version or hard copy edition on line. If you enjoy the collection of stories, we would certainly appreciate a review on Amazon.
