A massive thank you to author Daren Wang for joining our meeting to discuss his first novel The Hidden Light of Northern Fires! A very special thanks to Laura Lee Gentry for opening her lovely home (you are like super girl – truly) and to Jake Rothschild (of Jakes Ice Cream fame) for catering our event through Jakes Good Foods. Delish! A few of my favorite nibbles from the evening were the Devlish Eggs, chicken salad, and the pimento cheese! Completely yummy!
We opened up the meeting to others thus invited neighborhood peeps to join us as well. We wanted to share Daren Wang and his book with as many as possible!
Daren Wang lives n Decatur Ga. He grew up in Town Line NY – where the inspiration for this book began! For a peek into this town click HERE Daren explains how his childhood home, being a barn in Town Line NY is how he ended up with this incredible slice of history and first novel – click HERE for informative video with Daren Wang
I think I can completely speak on everyone’s behalf – what a magical evening as we sat listening, asking questions with Daren Wang! A huge shout out to Wendy for trying to get Tyler Perry’s attention to produce a movie of the book! Come on Mr. Perry! A great project for you! #TylerPerryMakeThisAMovie
Question for all our readers — if you were in this time pre-civil war – and posed with hiding a runaway slave — would you? I can say I would do ‘whatever’ it took to get someone to safety! #TylerPerryMakeThisAMovie
And YES! I of course videotaped most of the discussion — please forgive the giggles on my end and wavering of the iphone — I was trying to have a sip of wine every now and then. Guilty am I. Ahem. For the video that you can see on YOUTUBE CLICK HERE! Turn it up!
