Lauretta wrote 2 poems about characters in her town, Ken wrote about a character he remembered from his past comparing him to a great cave bear and one about an Elvis impersonator. Julie wrote about Round Lake Mary, Carl wrote about himself, and Nan wrote about a minister/Nascar enthusiast. Barbara spoke about her new novel.
