Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee
 by Casey Cep

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn’t think I was going to enjoy this book as much as I did. I hadn’t read much about Harper Lee before, and the book shed some light onto who she was. The trial she was researching was very interesting, too.

The book flowed well, and the author didn’t try to bounce back and forth between time periods and characters, so it made it easier to follow. It was well-written, and I would definitely recommend it to those who like non-fiction

Book signing 9/18 -Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?

My daughter and I went to a book signing last week. We went for sushi first

Edamame trio – plain, garlic, and chili lime

Miso soup.

While I stood in line, my daughter ran over to the pet store across the street. I saw someone get out of a car that looked like my cousin. It was! We didn’t know the other was attending the event.

My daughter came back a little confused, since it wasn’t planned. She didn’t want to be in the photo.

The front of the store.

When we got the books, they were already signed. The author was allowing photos, but my daughter and I decided to pass. My cousin stayed for her photo, though. It was a great evening.

A Writer’s Nightmare

Actual nightmare

The above linked article is about an author who misunderstood a legal term as part of her research and essentially wrote much of the book incorrectly.

I think it was wrong of the interviewer to wait until they were on the air to deliver the blow.  The book was supposed to come out today, so I am curious about how and if they fixed the errors.  When I looked up Outrages on Goodreads, I see that the release date was moved to June 2020.
