I just got an email from Judi Parmeter, with the Wauwatosa Senior Center, where I will be speaking in March. She said that the Contemporary Book group from the center has read “Murder in Wauwatosa: The Mysterious Death of Buddy Schumacher” and conducted a discussion on it.
I provided a few discussion questions for them, which apparently were pretty good suggestions, according to Judi.
Here are the discussion topics I suggested:
She said that two members of her group personally knew Lillian Harwood (my next door neighbor when I was a kid and the woman who spoke to me of the Schumacher murder) end spoke about her and the memoirs of her relatives.
Several of the members thought that map on Page 10 was hard to read and were wondering if I could bring a larger one to my talk. I agree with them on this as I wish the map had turned out a little better. I will try to get a better copy for my meeting and PowerPoint presentation.
Finally, Judi shared this: “The group members are looking forward to your presentation in March. They will share with everyone they know about the book so you can afford to feed your family. They got a chuckle out of this comment.”
Thanks, Judi! I’m looking forward to meeting everyone.
