1. Do you have a question we could ask the author? It may be about the book, or its characters, or the actual Camel Bookmobile in Kenya, or why she wrote the book, whatever. (Masha, we would be very pleased if you choose to add your own comments and questions to our discussion.)
Book Buddies, please start posting your questions NOW. I will be sending our questions to Masha Hamilton late tonight and again on Friday. You'll be able to read her answers tomorrow night (Monday) and sometime next weekend (maybe Sunday or Monday). You were excited about having the author join us, but you have to do your share of the work by coming up with questions.
- How much of the book is factual?
- Was the rule of one book lost actually used to eliminate stops on the library's rounds?
- What impact has the camel bookmobile had on the lives of the people?
- What did you learn while writing the book?
- What did you learn from the village people of Kenya?
- Is there a question you would like to answer than we haven't thought to ask?
- When you visited Africa, did you feel like a zebra among giraffes?
- How did you make the transition to writing fiction from news reports?
- Do you have several projects going at one time or concentrate on just the fiction?
- How many people does the camel bookmobile reach?
