Community - among my favorite words. Found community upon my move to East Hampton by reaching out to publisher Marty Shepard at www.permanentpress.com a neighbor in Sag Harbor. Received a warm welcome with open arms and a first invitation to visit him at the "office." His German Shepherd, Monty, is my new bff. Left with an armful of books including his current memoir, ON THE RECORD. Read it in one clip. Second invitation, dinner to meet his wife and business partner, Judy, and three wonderful writers who also make this super cold part of Long Island their home year-round. Jenny, Joan and Mary. What a treat. Third invitation is for dinner tonight. Can't wait to discover more about my new friends.
