A bit of a whoops for us all. Four people attended this one week delayed meeting via zoom. We are all hoping July will see us in person once again. Ev, Nancy, Becky and Michelle met for an hour. Our discussion was a bit random but did include some book recommendations and local writing/contest/zine news.
