A note from Deborah:

Dear Conversation Watchers,

I so appreciate your watching my conversation with Jane Hirshfield about An Onion in My Pocket and your support of Book Passage. It’s so important to support our wonderful independent book stores!

And I just want to add that for Thanksgiving, my husband and I will probably enjoy a good lasagna with homemade pasta—his request and my pleasure.

Books I’ve read and am reading:

Starting last March I was rereading books on my shelf:

My best to you all,
—Deborah Madison
