Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Great and uplifting film!

Author Visit: Marsha Moyer

We had a wonderful time with Marsha Moyer last week at our book discussion! Everyone had enjoyed one or both of Marsha’s books about Lucy, Ash, Geneva, Bailey, and numerous other characters who came to life for us and who we hope we will meet again in Marsha’s future books. Marsha told us how she had gotten started as a writer. Her story was different from many, as she had written books for years but never tried to have one published until she had a winner! We talked about the characters and their conflicts and personalities. Marsha told us a little about the future books in this series that she has in the works, without giving away too much about what happens to the characters. We forgot to mention Steve Cropper, the dog…I do hope he’ll show up in the next book! Our book discussion group member Barbara Moyer must be very proud of her daughter, Marsha! Thanks, Barbara, for sharing Marsha with us and please send Marsha our thanks again. Since the meeting, several people have mentioned how much they had enjoyed Marsha’s books and visit!

Marsha's books are called The Second Coming of Lucy Hatch, The Last of the Honky-Tonk Angels, and Heartbreak Town.
