For those of you who have been following our journey for awhile you’ll have heard bits and pieces of this story and the updated punchline is: my (Laynie’s) book Remember Us (which I co-wrote with my friend Lindsay) is now officially for sale!
Writing has been a little dream of mine for many, many years and it’s been humbling to see this little experiment turn into something I can hold in my hands. (In much the same way it used to be incredibly special to hold a newspaper with my photos in my hands, holding this book is so satisfying - tangible proof of all the long and exhausting hours we put into this creative project.)
We’ve had so much support and encouragement along the way and we are nothing but GRATEFUL. Thanks everyone who has believed in us along the way.
AND for any of you who are in a book club or want to start a book club or know someone in a book club…Lindsay and I have made a goal to visit 100 book clubs who have read our book this year.
Here’s the full excerpt from our website:
We are excited to announce the Blake & Beckner 100 Book Club Challenge!
We are challenging ourselves to meet with 100 Book Clubs that choose to read Remember Us to discuss and answer any questions.
Layne and I (Lindsay) will make ourselves available to you, our reading audience. If possible, we are happy to come in person! Layne lives in Southern Ontario but visits her home state of Kentucky regularly, and Lindsay lives in Omaha, Nebraska. If it’s not possible to meet in person, we would love to Facetime or Skype in to your group with our own glass of wine in hand.
We will post about each Book Club experience on our blog!
Remember Us has a page of Book Club discussion questions (don’t read beforehand!!!! …if you insist, even knowing there are spoilers, well then, that’s on you.)
So if you are part of a book club, starting a book club, considering joining a book club, or looking for your next read for your book club, please keep Remember Us and Blake & Beckner in mind.
Thanks, as always, for your help and support on this journey. We wouldn’t have made it this far without you!
