Live Online Chat with Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants

My book club read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen in 2007 (in my -pre blogging days), and it was one of those books that I told everyone about- friends, neighbors, people in line at the grocery store.  I could not shut up about this book.  It was so visual for me- like a whole little world living in the pages- and I wanted everyone to know about it.  I still think about Jacob and Marlena and Rosie!  

Through my book club we’ve had the pleasure of talking with authors, and while each one is different, it is always an enlightening experience.  I’ve never failed to walk away from a chat without having a greater appreciation for the book we’ve read- even if it was a book I didn’t like.  And if it’s a book I loved, well, after a chat with the author, I love it that much more. is sponsoring a live online chat tomorrow with Sara Gruen about her book, Water for Elephants.  If you’ve never had the opportunity to chat with an author, this is your chance.  Here’s the 411:
