  1. Hi Laura,
    What a lovely e-mail to get. Thank you for reading, and it’s wonderful to know that you were interested enough to seek out the full essay. I’ve never been involved with an audio book, but I think it would be so interesting to try reading myself. Thanks for such high praise!
    See you soon. XO

  2. Laurel, I read your essay “We Should Do Something” and was so moved I went down to the library to finish reading it but that issue is checked out. I have a hold on it. You write with honesty and feeling without being sentimental. If you ever do an audio book of it, you should read it – I could hear your voice while I was reading it. I hope you get the book published – it deserves to be. Thanks for sharing, Laura Rink
