SALOMA FURLONG AT MENDHAM BOOKS
A crowd of over thirty people showed up to hear Ms. Furlong talk about her book, WHY I LEFT THE AMISH. The audience was varied and included Episcopalian nuns as well as local librarians. A lengthy question and answer period followed and everyone was enthralled with Ms. Furlong's story.
It was interesting to me to hear the topics covered in the Q&A. When I reviewed Saloma's book way back in October, 2010, I focused on the human story depicted in her book. Many of the people attending yesterday's event asked questions that dealt more with the religious customs and practices of the Amish.
Before beginning her discussion, Saloma selected the name of the lucky winner of her just published book. Congratulations to SUE PISCITELLO! I'll be emailing you to arrange to get your inscribed copy of WHY I LEFT THE AMISH to you.
The Furlongs are continuing on their way to another event in Virginia this week.
A big thank you to Saloma and David Furlong for making the trip to New Jersey. Thanks to Mendham Books for hosting Saloma's discussion and book signing. Thanks to everyone who attended for making this event an incredible success! And a special thanks to my friends, Candace, LouAnn, Irene and Noreen for their support.
