Last Tuesday, I was invited to attend Professor Eve Caram's English 300 Contemporary Literature course at California State University, Northridge.
Lucky for me that Prof. Caram required her class to read
Letters Between Us. It was the last novel in the series and the class members
all had very insightful comments and questions for me.
I hope I measured up to them....I want to thank Prof. Caram and her class for a very articulate and fulfilling discussion about Letters. I was quite humbled by the experience and quite excited as well.

Thanksgiving holiday, Linda Rader Overman signed copies of her novel Letters Between Us at Russo's Books in Bakersfield, Ca.
Hosts were The Riccomini family--long time residents of Bakersfield. Linda and Merino Riccomini were kind enough to entertain Linda and her husband, Jim, in their lovely home as they continue to celebrate the engagement of their daughter Lisa to writer, director, and teacher Garrett Clancy of Los Angeles, formerly Boston.
Mike Russo and his dad,
Tony, were very gracious to
allow Letters Between Us
to have a meet & greet
at their beautiful bookstore.
Linda felt very lucky
to be there and even more fortunate to talk
about her book to passersby who were nice
enough to stop and chat, and even buy the book!
Linda ended up meeting a former Hollywood High School alumnus, Kathy Arnold, who lives in Bakersfield....They graduated within a few years of each other.
Kathy ended up introducing Linda and Jim to another HHS alumnus Susan Reep who also graduated within a few years of them. This world just gets smaller and smaller. And both ladies bought copies of the book.
Thanks to Russo's and Riccominis for making the holiday end on a very happy literary note!
