EVERY BOOK CLUB'S DREAM!
We wanted to share with you the surprise visit of one of our PBM authors to our book center here in Alexandria – and the way God’s Providence came into play in a special way!
We have a young adult women's book club that meets every other Tuesday night here in Alexandria. Recently, we decided that our next book would be "Discovering the Feminine Genius: Every Woman’s Journey" by Katrina Zeno, and we were all geared up to begin our sharing on the book this Tuesday evening.
At around 5 pm that day, Katrina Zeno paid a totally unexpected visit to our book center! The Sisters were all excited, and told her that our book club was meeting that night to start discussing her new book! Katrina was excited, too, and wanted to know all about the book club, how we run the sessions, and what it is like. By the end of our conversation, she asked if she could attend our first session on her book!
We had a lovely first discussion. The young women were delighted (and yes, surprised!) when they found out who she was. She signed everyone’s books, and I’ve attached the photos we took with her that evening. Katrina thanked everyone warmly, and said it was the highlight of her vacation here. She left to go back to AZ the following morning! It was definitely a night the young women will remember!
Blessings to you all,
