Book Festivals and good books

This weekend, the JGDS is taking a break to attend, or at least volunteer, the SC Book Festival. This is our creator's fourth year doing this festival and she loves it. If you like good books and fun stuff or meeting authors, having them sign your books or just walking around and checking out what all is out there and you happen to be in the Columbia, SC, area, then come by the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center and meet folks like Mary Alice Monroe, Cathy Pickens or Gwen Hunter. If you look hard enough, you might even see our creator in one of those red volunteer T-shirts. Be sure to stop by and say hello to her. She will be a room monitor part of the weekend and a greeter the rest (she really does love that greeting position because she meets so many interesting people coming through the doors).

Check it out as there is even a kids' area this year with arts and crafts and readings by children's authors. For more info, go to the Book Festival's website,, and check out the schedule or who all will be an exhibitor - see you in the postings - and have fun - find a good book to curl up with.

We just got back from this festival and picked up a book called Archy the Flying Dolphin. My son was really excited about this book he started reading it on the way home. He hasn't yet put it down. (except when i said it's time to eat dinner)
I just want to say this festival was really great - the kids section was wonderful and we are really happy with the books we left with.

I also just looked on the website for Archy the Flying Dolphin if you're interested to read what my son can't put down.
