How exciting!

It's wonderful that she'll be coming!


I just recently discovered her mystery series, and am looking forward to seeing her in person! I just wish it was at Border's downtown, you know?

Id love to see her

Id love to see her

Me too:)

Borders was great, but I hate to think of trying to find parking downtown during student move-in week! So in this case at least, I'm glad it's at WCC.

Look forward to it

I hadn't heard of the series before. I look forward to diving into it.

Im planning to attend!

Can't wait

What a wonderful evening!

Thanks so much to AADL and Aunt Agatha's for inviting and arranging for Louise Penny to speak. The hour FLEW by!

I have loved her books and look forward to reading the latest, and "Book 11" when it comes out.

One reader who got up to ask her a question said these were the only mystery books she had read that moved her to tears. I feel the same way. You get very wrapped up in the characters and really feel for them. Cheer for them. Get angry when people mess with them.

Thanks again. It was fun.

It was a fascinating conversation indeed.

I'm very grateful to the organizers for hosting this program.
Now, one of the hosts mentioned that the presentation was videotaped. If so, how can that be viewed?
