What a dream assignment - interviewing women for More magazine's 40 Around the World feature in the Sept. issue! My interviews with Jie Zhou of China and Alyona Kapoor of India are among the profiles featured . . . Congrats to Jeannie Ralston (www.jeannieralston.com) on the publication of The Unlikely Lavender Queen: A Memoir of Unexpected Blossoming (Doubleday Broadway, May '08)! . . . And to Allison Winn Scotch (www.allisonwinn.com), author of The Dept. of Lost & Found, on her upcoming novel, Time of My Life (Shaye Areheart, Oct. '08) . . . Contact both authors through their websites for a call-in phone chat with YOUR book club!

I recently had the pleasure of hearing author Greg Mortenson (Three Cups of Tea) speak and look forward to interviewing him soon. I highly recommend his book about the work he is doing, promoting peace through the building of schools for the children of Afghanistan and Pakistan. For a list of cities on his current speaking tour, see www.threecupsoftea.com/BookTour2008.php.
