...Anybody remember Lou Rawls' song of some decades ago called Groovy People?

Well in it, he refers to individuals whom he loves to share time with and kick back and relax.

"Down home" people is what he calls them.

Well, I feel the same way about creative souls.

I dig the vibe, the energy, and the creative connection from writers and poets!

I love the intellectual stimulation. You typically won't find useless small talk or big gossip mongers. We share stuff that changes lives and broadens horizons.

Like the recent Authors' Day event that I helped to organize at the new Beverly Library, (held by the Chicago Writers Association.) What a great afternoon!

If you missed it, you missed out on some enlightening, diverse authors, a great spread, and endless opportunities to network with like minded, "groovy people".

I'm looking forward to our next event in November..
Hope to see you there!


  1. Hey, Jennifer, You're the grooviest one of all. What a fab job you did in making this event not only happen but a sparkling success. Keep on groovin'!

  2. I had help from the "man upstairs".:-)

    Not to mention, CWA rocks because we have a great leader!

    U keep groovin' 2!

  3. It was an excellent event. It was well run, the authors were delightful and interesting, and the audience was really great -- engaged, responsive, and right there with the writers.

    May you continue to have successful events, and great audiences, Jennifer. And thanks again for having us.

  4. It was indeed my pleasure! Hope to see you at the next event.

    Happy writing.:-)

  5. Sorry you missed it too. Stay tuned for our next event at Sonoma Cafe on November 14th.
    It promises to be a blast!
    Let me know if you'd like the details.
