Matchmaker – Patty M.

Patty's desert island reads:

  • A book of short stories by Edgar Allan Poe
  • The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  • Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
  • Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
  • The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
  • Walden by Henry David Thoreau

What Patty does when she's not reading:

  • Knit
  • Cross-stitch
  • Hike
  • Watch television

If Patty could meet any literary character, or visit any literary world, it would be:

Either Poe or Thoreau.  I would love to go to either world, in Richmond VA or Concord MA.  I would love to hang around Concord with Henry David's friends, and I would love to walk the streets of Richmond with Poe.

Ask Patty what to read.
