Good morning! In April, I had the chance to go hear Salman Rushdie speak at Mizzou, and it was basically a once in a lifetime opportunity. When will such a notorious Booker Prize winner ever come speak at Mizzou in my time spent here again, and for free? The chances of that are slim, so I jumped on the general admission tickets to reserve a seat, and picked a book to read of his. I found The Enchantress of Florence in a second-hand book shop at home in Arkansas, and chose it for this month's book!
The talk was amazing, and he even read a short story he's working on, that had yet to be heard by the public, anywhere. It was quite good, and I loved that I got to hear his story-telling voice, because now reading this book, I can hear him reading it in my head. I'm almost half-way through, and can't wait to finish it! Let's get to reading!
