Holding Hands Around the World

As the Internet and airplanes help us all to widen our horizons, let's all join in sharing our book friends with our book friends!

This page is designed to facilitate this happy exchange. If you have a book friend you'd like to introduce from Cairo, Egypt; Cairo, Illinois; Rome, New York; Rome, Italy; London, New London, even Mars - please let us welcome your book friend here. Send names and a little bit of information and a photo or book cover to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The list is organized by state and then by country. If you are traveling, you might just find yourself welcomed into a studio away from studio! If you are staying home, when you get to your desk at 8 a.m. you might just find a good morning email from a new friend who is already sipping late afternoon tea or coffee the next morning.

The world is getting smaller! Let's all take advantage of this lovely, BROADENING fact!
