Book Club Video Experiment

C:\Users\Carole\Pictures\verde writers critique circle.jpg I was recently contacted by a friend who lives in Boise, Idaho. Her book club members read Midwife of Normandy and invited the author (me) to attend their discussion group. Since I live in Arizona, we tried an experiment. Using the app GoogleDuo on my Android device, I was able to participate for an hour via live video chat. The amazing part is that my friend has an Apple iPad, yet our devices were compatible. Her book club sat at a round table and rotated her device on a turntable so I could talk face-to-face with each group member, as if I were sitting there with them. The sound quality was excellent, as was the video. They enthusiastically invited me back next spring, when they plan to read my second book, Lucina’s Destiny.

Are you a member of a book club that is reading one of my books? If so, please contact me if you are interested in having me participate via GoogleDuo.
