Book Launch: The Secret of Clouds

26 Feb

Last week I met the author Alyson Richman on the day her novel, The Secret of Clouds, was launched. She spoke at the JCC in Palm Beach Gardens and is currently on a book tour.

Since no one read the book, she spoke about her background and how she gathers her ideas. The Secret of Clouds is about a the special bond that can develop between and a teacher and a student. At the book talk, Richman related the story of how one third grade teacher has each student write a letter to their eighteen-year-old self and mails it upon graduation. You can hear this inspirational story  here.

Richman also related some facts about her book The Lost Wife, which will made into a movie. Richman overheard the story while at the hairdressers about star-crossed lovers who marry during World War II. They become separated during the Nazi invasion, and they believed their partner was dead.¬† They see each other again, decades later, at their grandchildren’s wedding. That true, powerful story became the basis of her novel.

I also learned that Richman’s father is an electrical engineer and her mother is an artist. From what I see by glancing through the book, she has the precision of her father and the gift of painting with words– not on a canvas but in a book.

I can’t wait to read The Secret of Clouds and The Lost Wife.
