Returning to Baltimore to talk about Imagining Katherine and the process from memory to fiction has been one of my greatest joys this past year. The audience at the Lecture Group and at the Pikesville Library Speakers Series shared many of the memories that I mined for this YA novel. In every laugh, sigh, and question, our bond was palpable. Thank you, Karen Egorin and Ruth Goldstein for inviting me to speak to your groups. I look forward to visiting again when my short story collection is published.
