"We're Authors"


My Life Stories group continues to get together monthly to socialize and share more stories. I joined the group this morning at the local Denny's. What fun! I learned that last month they showed up at the restaurant on a busy day and received assistance from an assistant manager as well as a waitress. "Which group are you with?" my students were asked. "We're authors," one of the quick-thinking group members replied. Before they knew it they heard other patrons referring to them as "well-known authors," one fellow diner had paid part of the group's lunch bill, and one of the Denny's staff had offered for the restaurant to host the group members' next book signings!
