Lana Billman, Gail Baugniet, David Jones, Shauna Jones, Jenny DelosSantos, Lizbeth Hartz, Vicki White, Gay Gale, Katharine Nohr, Rose Mary Thompson, Kent Reinker




SPEAKER: Gail Baugniet ­– gave us a great overview and tour of GoodReads.


  1. SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT UPDATES: The class you will be speaking for is in the Krauss building room 113 and 111 (rooms joined)

  • The rear of Krauss Hall backs up to Dole street

  • A simple rectangular room with space for about 30 (but that would be crowded)

  • You sit on the long side of the room so it is only a few long rows deep of chairs.

  • The students are age 50 plus, some are authors and others wanna-be's -Some just there to learn

  • Very casual atmosphere

  • You can have a power-point if you want- it is not required, necessary so don't feel obligated

  • Your choice to run the class as you see fit.

  • I did not have a power-point-I wanted the class to watch me and not read stuff.  It helped me connect with them better.

  • Katharine did, but she had photos and other things that made her talk need a power-point

  • You may have handouts if you like

  • If you have a power-point you must notify and e-mail it to Will Cecil no later than the day before.  olliuhm@hawaii.edu

  • Parking is awful.  Took me 40 min and Katharine 1 hour to park

  • There is a garage across the street but it closes early.  Definitely by or before 10

  • In the campus lots you can park only in green stalls and pay the machine.

  • SAVE PARKING RECEIPT.  You will need to mail it back to them to be reimbursed.

  • We had about 10 students.

  • There was a big event the day we talked to ... on the following days (when there is no other event) there may be better parking and more students.

  • The director felt that think some students did not come because the parking was almost impossible

  • I sold 4 Dark Paradise books, I don't know about Katharine

  • You have one hour but there must be a 15 in break between the 10 and the 11 class talks.

  • Remember we are here on behalf of Sisters in Crime National - so introduce SinC and offer them to join our meetings or join SinC.  Also tell them about us-our meetings-outings ...

  • I will attach the SinC benefits again to help and SinC membership form (bring several copies)

  • So give about 15 min at end of your hour for Q&A, book sales and break.

  • There is coffee and water available for you.

  • You may want to offer the opportunity for people to be a member-the form is attached.
