Review at the Tarentum Book Club

I am truly honored. My novel, “The Reach of the Banyan Tree,” is being reviewed at the prestigious Tarentum Book Club in Tarentum, Pennsylvania. This is no ordinary book club. It was founded in 1901 for the sake of bringing ‘women together that are interested in Literature and Science, for the purpose of mental culture.’

Here’s the 2001 newspaper article which highlighted the group’s 100th year anniversary meeting. 100 Year Anniversary News Article

And now, in 2015, the group is still going strong and they are reviewing my book! How awesome is that? Oh, how I wish I could sit in on this! Too bad I’ll be 12,000 miles away.

However, my sister has been invited, and she was asked to bring some Vietnam knickknacks to help decorate the house, setting the scene for the review of the book based on Vietnam. These ladies go all out! They even asked my advice for what kind of dessert would be Vietnamese. That’s easy. Fruit.

On so on this Friday, October 9th, I am honored to be chosen for review at the Tarentum Book Club. I hope my story provided some interesting reading and stimulated some good discussion. I hope it was worthy enough for “mental culture.” That’s a mighty high task! But I am grateful and humbled that you chose my book.

I hope you enjoy!
