Discussion: Choosy About Book Events
Kel Sunday, August 31, 2014 discussionThe fall is a big season for book and author events. We've spent the summer getting worked up for all the new titles, and now we're ready to storm the bookstores, buy the pretty hardcovers and interrogate their creators.
Essentially, it comes down to logistics and prioritizing accordingly. None of these events are just around the corner and all will require spending money (on gas and books). So, while I don't usually do this because I hate getting everyone excited about things that may not happen, I'm going to give a quick rundown of the book events I'm thinking about this month. I know I won't make it to all of them, but I'd like to know if any of them sound especially interesting to you guys. (Or if anyone would like a signed copy of something mailed to him/her... >.>)
September Book Events:
Week 2: David Levithan, Stephanie Perkins & Chris Van Etten
Week 4: Fierce Reads - Ann Aguirre, Caragh M. O'Brien, Marie Rukoski
Week 5: Baltimore Book Festival
I'm trying to keep extraneous spending low this month since I know Disney will suck me dry at the Food & Wine Festival in October; but it's rare I get this many book events in one month, so I definitely want to take advantage of it. Any thoughts? :)
