I’m headed to Flat Rock, N.C. for the 7th Annual Blue Ridge Bookfest, held today and tomorrow (April 24-25) on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College.
I’m thrilled to be presenting along with such fabulous authors–many of them NYT best-sellers. The Keynote Speaker, retired war and foreign correspondent Joe Galloway (author of We Were Soldliers…) is speaking at a reception tonight, and I can’t wait! Tommy Hays (What I Came to Tell You), Karen White (The House on Tradd Street), Terry Kay (To Dance With a White Dog) and others will also be presenting.
Because I’m a Speaker, the fine folks with the Bookfest are putting me up for the night in a local B&B. Suffice it to say, I’m also pretty doggoned excited about a night in a room by myself. I may read! More likely I’ll be grading my college students’ final essays of the semester, but a girl can dream.
The Bookfest is FREE and open to the public. For the Bookfest schedule and more information about the Speakers and events, click here.
