Save the Date--Book Festival

The countdown has started for the 2014 Festival of Books!  October 10, 11 and 12 are the festival days on Legislative Plaza (across from the capital).

Here are a couple of authors on my list:

Pat Conroy--The Great Santini, The Prince of Tides, Beach Music

Emily St John Mendel--Last Night in Montreal, The Lola Quarter, and her soon to be released fourth novel Station Eleven

Frances Mayes--Under the Tuscan Sun

Christina Baker Kline--Orphan Train

Don't like any of these books or authors, no worries there are 244 authors coming for the festival. 

Book readings and signings, food trucks, Q & A's with the authors.
It's an awesome free event!  To learn more about the festival and see the lists of authors visit Southern Festival of Books site or Humanities of Tennessee site.


  1. Very cool! I hope I make it to a book fair someday.

  2. What a wonderful event! I found Orphan Train very interesting and a worthwhile read.
