The round table was very interesting. When Sarah talked more about why she wrote the book an image came into my head. I thought about my neighborhood and how it changed from when I was smaller to now that I understand and see the change more clearly. It was deep and takes a lot to think about in order to write a book and now Its hard to believe she published 18 books, I found it amazing. especially since she almost did no research and used her memories and stories. Other than that I didn’t like that I was called on and I got so nervous that I panicked. I never spoke out loud to a crowd especially reading about something I wrote and it made me feel uncomfortable. Although I felt nervous and turned into a tomato I do wish I had shared something but there is a next time for everything.
