The goal is 100 book clubs in one year. Two Oregon authors have launched this ambitious campaign to share their memoirs: Kathleen Cremonesi with Love in the Elephant Tent, How Running Away with the Circus Brought Me Home, and Danuta Pfeiffer with Chiseled, A Memoir of Identity, Duplicity and Divine Wine. Both books are distinguished by Amazon five-star reviews, recommendations, honors and awards.
Kathleen Cremonesi says, “Book clubs have been such fun for us in the past. We thought if more clubs knew about us, they might like the idea of having two authors and two books for one grand event. A two-for-one special!”
The authors are prepared to Skype to book clubs outside the Eugene area. Danuta Pfeiffer says they’ve done it before. “Skyping a book club is easy and almost like being there. We do readings, answer questions, and offer stories behind-the-scenes and generally entertain our clubs for 90 minutes.”
When local book clubs come calling, Pfeiffer often opens up her winery doors at Pfeiffer Winery in Junction City to they have book club events over a glass of wine.
Cremonesi’s book, Love in the Elephant Tent, How Running Away with the Circus Brought Me Home, is her memoir of how an Italian circus offered a footloose American her very own pair of ruby stilettos. She dons a rhinestone bikini, becomes an ostrich-riding, shark-taming showgirl, and falls for the handsome elephant keeper, and lives to tell the tale. kathleencremonesi.com
Pfeiffer’s book, Chiseled, A Memoir of Identity, Duplicity and Divine Wine, is her award winning memoir about an idealistic journalist who becomes the unlikely co-host to a television evangelist bent on becoming the President of the United States. When her past catches up to her, she is caught in the cross hairs of politics and religion. danutapfeiffer.com
