Book tours we prepped for at killer pace have slid through our fingers. Face-to-face meetings have gone on hiatus. Several branches have expanded their social media programs. One started a writing contest, followed by plans for an anthology of fiction about pandemics. One member leads a homegrown team that has turned out 5000 masks. Many of us found time for that writing project we could never quite get around to before.

For inspiration and kindred spirits, check out branch social media activities and contests by clicking on each branch under the Branches tab. Remember that with social media, you don’t necessarily have seek a branch where you live.

Meanwhile, we look forward our next face-to-face meetings — after the crisis passes — to reunite, reconnect, and jubilate with the friends who rode through the fire together with us.
