On Friday afternoon, May 19th, the OPLbery Club members spoke with author Claire Legrand via Skype. Claire’s book, Some Kind of Happiness won the 2017 OPLbery Medal.
We showed Claire the OPLbery Medal on our copy of the book and she was delighted. Then she talked about the process of writing the book and “the story behind the story.” Many of the characters in the book are based on people that she knew growing up. The setting was also based on her grandparents’ real home. The OPLbery members asked her a lot of questions which she cheerfully answered. We felt very privileged to be able to have this experience. Thank you Claire Legrand for taking time to Skype with us!
