Donna's Book Club Hosted Best-Selling Author Sally Kirkpatrick
Writers love to read, too! It was such an honor and so much fun to have best selling author Sally Kilpatrick in my home! My book club (Witty Women, Wine and Words) chose her newest release, "Oh My Stars," as our December selection and she joined us for a great night of discussion and laughter. We're missing some from the photo who had to leave earlier, but we had a nice turnout. The decor and buffet items were themed, taken from elements of "Oh My Stars". If you've read the book, you'll want to see ALL the pics HERE.
