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.
