Dani Shapiro on Oprah

danishapiroonOprah
Dani Shapiro, a remarkable writer and mentor of writers will be featured this fall in conversation with Oprah. Dani’s memoir, “Devotion” was one of “O” The Oprah Magazine’s must-read picks for February.

I have been blessed to be in two of Dani’s workshop’s at Sirenland (see my blogs on this). She’s an extraordinary woman and I’m very much looking forward to seeing her in discussion with another extraordinary woman, Oprah Winfrey.
