Marie Bostwick was a speaker at the Book Author Luncheon sponsored by the Greater Meriden Branch of the American Association of University Women in April, 2019. This is an event that has taken place annually for more than 40 years and always has an attendance of more than 150 people. The audience is mostly women and all of them are readers! I was told that Marie was a “good speaker.” But she was better than that. She was a great speaker. She used humor and anecdotes to connect with the audience and they loved her! She told us about her writing background and process and shared her life with us. Her talk was personal and spoke to our souls. One attendee, a husband of one of the members who has dragged him along to the luncheon for many years, told me that Marie was the best speaker we ever had. My own view is that giving her 20 minutes was a mistake. We should have given her an hour and 20 minutes! I would welcome the chance to hear Marie speak anytime.
