So! Even though I am a bit tired, I have decided to go to the book meeting with Sapphire. Of course, you all know about the book, "Push" which is now a movie, "Precious" and has made the rounds in film festivals, etc. Anyway, the book is creatively written, especially if you know the way the mind works, and words, and reading and teaching, and the minds of teenagers, kids, etc. I love the story as well, but most of all, it was the way she told the story that made me love the book. I remember reading the book and smiling, thinking, "ah! she has a great mind...yeah, this is creative...umhmmm, yeah, yeah, well done" Most of the time, I was more into the way the story was unfolding than the story itself. Anyway, I don't think I have any questions...but they usually come up when I am there, so we'll see. Also, it will be interesting to know more about her. I think she is pretty exciting anyway!
Update: Well, I knew she would be intelligent but I did not know she would be funny as well! I am glad I went. I did not get to ask my question, but it really did not matter because she really got into the discussions and she had so much energy! She has a strong presence as well, for such a tiny person. You should have heard her read the first page of the book! What a performance! Well, she is a poet and used to performing, so I guess less could not be expected. I bumped into a friend of mine as well there...all in all, it was an interesting and worthwhile experience.
