Posts Tagged ‘Kiyo’s Story: A Japanese American Familys Quest for the American Dream’

Colleague Margie Yee Webb told me about a fun event that happened this past Tuesday night.  I believe in post-event cheers for my colleagues.  If you’re in the Sacramento area, go meet these authors at events. What do these authors have in common?  They’re all vibrant members at the Sacramento Branch of the California Writers Club. I have worked with them (Margie Yee Webb, Steve Liddick, Bob Quinlan, Frances Kakugawa, Kiyo Sato, Susan M. Osborn) at various literary events and I think they are all delightful!  Margie, Bob, Frances and I are WNBA members
