Mystery Book Discussion in Second Life

If all goes well, I'll be attending a book discussion in Second Life, the virtual world. It's a reader group, but I believe any book dissection is valuable for writers, and it's the kind of thing I've been looking for since I began knocking about in the SL universe a couple of weeks ago.

The event, a discussion of Ross MacDonald's The Moving Target, the first Lew Archer novel, is at 6 p.m. SL Time tonight, and it's sponsored by Info Island, one of the first libraries to provide Second Life programming.

I'm hopeful that it will be a good experience to add to a list of several positive SL visits I've had over the last few days.

I dropped by the Book Mooch group's picnic on Sunday which included virtual coffee, pizza and some general book talk plus some valuable info for me on where to visit on the grid to talk about books, writing etc.

One of the Book Mooch members directed me to a nice in-world coffee shop, where I chatted with some nice people.

I did not make it to the "Blue Angel's" open mic poetry event but that's a regular activity that I'll try to catch, maybe even read a poem or two though it's been a while since I've picked up a quill.
