An Imaginative Dinner Party

 "Do you never imagine things different from what they really are?" Anne asked wide-eyed?
"No."
"Oh!" Anne drew a long breath. "Oh, Miss Marilla, how much you miss!"
                                                                               Anne of Green Gables

From bhg.com on Pinterest
The setting is an elegantly staged dining room. There are eight seats at the table. You occupy one. If you could fill the remaining seats with your favorite authors, past or present, whom would you invite?

I've put together an eclectic group at my table. Wouldn't this discussion be lively?
From left: John Steinbeck, Pearl S. Buck, Mark Twain, Willa Cather,
Barbara Kingsolver, William Faulkner, Laura Hillenbrand.
Happy Reading and Dining!

  1. Reading the quote just makes me giddy! I love Anne of Green Gables and cannot wait to start reading it again. Many wonderful childhood memories are associated with this book.

    1. I am really enjoying reading Anne! I think my problem all along has been that I need more imagination :) Thanks for visiting Christy!

  2. OMG I would be overwhelmed and won't be able to enjoy dinner at all with all I love to read around.

    Immediately I would say Mary Higgins Clark, Dan Wells, Lisa Genova, Heath Sommer, Kristin Hannah and James Houston Turner.

  4. I love that list. I certainly would have included the first five, my other favourites, definitely Jane Austen and Joyce Carol Oates and there are quite a few more ...
