Anytime I have the chance to spend time with readers, I grab it. Especially if it means I get out of cooking dinner. I have to say this was one of the best events I’ve been to. The readers were so much fun and everyone was really nice. I wish I’d been able to see some of the city, but the weekend was packed.
The highlight of the weekend was a luncheon on Saturday. All 60 authors decorate their tables with a theme. I chose the French Revolution since I have a book set during the French revolution coming out this summer. Here are a few pictures.
Some of the other decorations were cockades, like the ones the revolutionaries wore to show their loyalty to the republic; a set of Robespierre earrings; and a real assignat, which is the money that replaced the livre when the monarchy was overthrown.
All of the tables were amazing, and it was so much fun to walk around and see what each author had done. I think the readers had just as much fun as we did.
Are there any events like this near you?
