The Literary Ya-Yas of St. Petersburg, Fla.
Skype has been a terrific way to talk to book groups around the world. This visit (pictured) was with the delightful Literary Ya-Yas of St. Petersburg, Fla. Organizer Shelley Manes first emailed me ready to curse me out for getting her so attached to the characters in "Guernica" only to have to suffer their loss during the tragic bombing. I offered to Skype-visit with her book club during its meeting. They set up the computer and we had a great visit. Shelley forgave me, incidentally, and came away loving the book. In all, a very fun group! I have done a couple in England, with "The Undesirables," too.

    Thanks, Dave, for your accommodating and generous insight into your writing craft and extra "back story" on Guernica. Our book group is already the envy of so many friends, and this just tops the cake!
