Reading and Writing Celebrations

My friend, Carol Baldwin, has listed a few reading and writing events coming up in the next two months that you don't want to miss. If you are interested, pop over to her blog and check it out.

I have a few to add to the list, which are smaller but probably worth the looksee - next weekend will be the Highlands, NC Celebration of Books festival (this is a first year event, but they are doing a bang up job of advertising and making it known that this event is going on; it is nestled in the mountains of North Carolina and the weather is turning just a bit so shouldn't be too hot up there right now); The SC Geographic Alliance's Geofest in Columbia, SC (geared more towards educators and others who are into the geography aspect of education), a new one in Charleston, SC, this year which has had some good exposure up north in previous years, and of course the Savannah Children's Book Festival in November (this one boasted over 10,000 folks visiting this past November so should be a wonderful turnout this year (hoping the weather is like it was last year)).

Maybe you have a list of festivals in your area that are a book lover's delight. Don't be shy and share with the rest of our readers. You never know who will show up at an event near you - Mrs. E :)

Thanks for sharing. I'll have to see if I can make it any of them.

Virginia, perhaps there are a few in your area that may be of interest to the readers; perhaps in your spare time 9like you have a lot of that right now) you can find some to be a vendor at with your books. The ones I gave are actually ones I'm going to be a vendor with. The ones on Carol's blog save the National Book Fest are ones that can be done online in conjunction with school visits or other things. As long as it gets people reading or writing - I'm all for it -

Thanks for stopping by - E :)
