Hi Everyone::

When asking authors for a reading excerpt, I always hope for something that will resonate with OSS members. But I also know that our authors are extremely busy and I am very grateful for anything they can send. I do love hearing a book from the writer's own voice.

Today, when I opened the link below from Kate Moore, I was blown away. The passion she has for the legacy of the Radium Girls is expressed with such heartfelt purpose and intention. It was fascinating to hear how she prepared to write this book; and how she honored the stories of these brave women who are so present in our lives today. Plus, I could listen to Kate Moore’s voice all day. Feeling inspired and so grateful to Kate Moore to be able to share this with all of you. I hope you’ll share your thoughts.

Still glowing,

Megan | 16 comments I loved the book - I kind of vaguely registered that the author was British from a few things she said, but it didn’t fully click until now. Her speaking style is different from her writing style! :)
