The secret to Diane Falanga’s success – as an author & friend – is her ability to embrace emotional truths, find what is dear & unique in each of us, and connect as many good people and good ideas as possible. Her reading of her sequel compilation book featuring hilarious and heart-wrenching letters by kids at sleep-away camp last night proved a good reminder of this.

Diane brought to life the children who penned sentences like “I love everything about the camp, except the campers” and “the rash on Josh’s P-Nus improved” for a connected and caring audience in an absolutely stunning lakefront home. We laughed, we sighed, we reminisced about our own or our children’s camp experiences.

Universal truths connect.

If this stimulates your interest in a 2012 summer camp experience, here’s a great digital guide for you:

If you’re sending your child to camp – share laughs and an opportunity to discuss potential emotional trials with them over a copy of P.S. I Still Hate It Here!, which you can order here:
