Today’s the day! Do you have your copy of Go Set A Watchman? Most bookstores around the country and even overseas are doing some sort of promotion for this book by Alabama author, Harper Lee. Here in Fairhope, we’ll be celebrating at Page and Palette Bookstore with a party beginning at 5pm. I’ll be one of the authors who are doing a reading, while refreshments are served. There will also be book give-aways and a free photo booth. Come out and join the fun at 5pm! (click HERE for my previous post on the event and book).
There’s another great author who is also being featured today at Page and Palette. Susan Crandall will be talking to the crowd at 12 noon and telling us all about her new book, “The Flying Circus.” It’s free, and you can bring a lunch, or pay $10 to purchase a lunch there. (call ahead to order – 251-928-5295).
Susan Crandall is a critically acclaimed author of women’s fiction, romance, and suspense. She has written several award-winning novels including her first book, “Back Roads”, which won the RITA award for best first book, as well as “Whistling Past the Graveyard”, which won the SIBA 2014 Book Award for Fiction.
Then, get ready for a double treat on Thursday, July 16th. Laura Lane McNeal and Patti Callahan Henry will join together for a luncheon at The Venue. The cost is $15 for lunch, which will include a $5 coupon for a book.
I’m just amazed at the literary talent in this area. It must be the breeze off the bay that inspires us to write and to embrace other writers into our community. Get out and get involved in some of these inspiring events. And if you live out of our area, get to your locally owned bookstore and dive in!
