I Met an Author Today in Libraryland

Barbara Shoup is an award-winning author and a faculty member at IUPUI. In her lecture this morning on writing memoirs, Barbara engaged her audience, and I was fortunate enough to be sitting intently at the front table. In fact, she took a little extra time to chat with me afterwards about threading together a memoir; something I had trouble with last summer when Steve and I went to the Midwest Writer's Conference in Muncie. She even took my email address and encouraged me to correspond with her. For that, I will read, purchase, and promote her book on my blog. And add her link to my blogs to read list. The duck on her book cover makes me laugh. And therefore I want to open the pages and find out her story.
