MAY MEETING TOPIC & SPEAKERS:  Have you ever read a book with a location so vividly rendered that it comes alive and you can see, smell, taste, hear and touch the place? Our panelists Michelle Kadarusman, Mahtab Narsimhan and Heather Smith, with moderator Paul Coccia, discuss how they bring their locations to life and make them as fully-realized as their characters. 

FORMAT: The meetings open with remarks by President Sharon Jennings, followed by announcements by Members and Friends, and then presentations by the meeting speakers. During the meeting, attendees can type questions into Chat, which will be read aloud by the meeting coordinator.  Everyone is encouraged to linger after the meeting in breakout rooms to each other in smaller groups.
