A gathering at The Sitting Room, a community library focused on women’s issues and achievements and where Dianne took her first fiction writing class and then met for years with a women’s writing group.

Carrollton, MO in October
An interview at the library in Dianne’s hometown with a buddy from high school, journalist, professor, and adoptive parent Repps Hudson.
