Are you attending?
I am off this afternoon to make a book club presentation to a Scottish Rite group in Austin, Texas. Proceeds from Riddle of Berlin go to the Scottish Rite Hospital in Dallas, a phenomenal hospital for children that has not charged any patient one cent for treatment of all manner of maladies in its 70 year history. It is an honored connection for me. I find that it is fun to make these presentations by becoming the protagonist in the story and explaining his or her own emotions. In this case, it is a male group so it will be the feelings of the man (John Jaegerman) who jumped in the Seine River only to eventually save the world from a plague of terrorism. Next week, I will speak to an Eastern Star group of ladies and will frame the discussion from the standpoint of the female protagonist (Carmen Pacifica).
