Paul was invited to spend the afternoon in Clinton for the club’s monthly gathering. He answered questions about the lives of film star Andrea King and her cigar-smoking mother Belle McKee and brought a full PowerPoint presentation along with him, complete with rare photos from Andrea and Belle’s personal scrapbooks. The readers posed insightful questions about the identity of Andrea’s father, a mystery that weaves its way throughout the book, as well as other notable, true-life figures who played important roles in their century-long journey.

Book clubs are a great way to share good stories, opinions, and (in this case) ask an author questions in person about the creation of a book. If you’re reasonably reachable by car from Lawrence, Kansas, home of co-author Paul Miles Schneider, and you have a book club interested in “More Than Tongue Can Tell,” don’t hesitate to contact Paul about an event. You can do so by way of the Facebook page for this book or by leaving a comment below.
