October means the Southern Festival of Books, the biggest, most important literary event in Nashville! Over 20,00 book lovers are expected to attend, October 12-14, downtown. Authors from all over the U.S. will be presenting.
I’ll be on one of the panels with other Sisters in Crime writers. Our topic is “Misadventures in Mystery,” the lengths to which a crime writer will go for realism and research. I’m sure Lisa Wysocky, Kelly Oliver, and Karen Robards have had a few misadventures, as have I! It’s always fun to get together with the Sisters (and Misters).
Our panel is Saturday, October 13, 2 pm at the Nashville Main Library’s Banner Room.
It’s free, it’s fun, and you may get to see the next great American writer!
If you’re anywhere near Columbia, please join me for an event at the Maury County Library, at 11:00 on Saturday. There will be 16 authors signing books, including Doug Jones and me. Then you can walk over to the new bookstore that is having its opening on Saturday. Way to go, Columbia! I am hoping to see some of my Waynesboro friends.
Please take a look around and let me know what you think. This is a new adventure for me, and I’m looking foward to meeting other writers and readers – making new friends and connecting with old ones.
Have fun browsing!
