Kelley Armstrong, Kiera Cass, Danielle Paige, Kimberly Derting — an author event — 10 Comments

  1. I’ve been to many author events, though not recently. When I lived in Miami, I’d attend the Miami International Book Fair every year. Sponsored by Miami-Dade College, anyone could attend lectures by authors and stay for book signings afterwards. I heard talks by Pat Conroy, Alexander McCall Smith, Dave Barry, Carl Hiaasen, and a host of other wonderful authors. This amazing week-long event is what I miss most about South Florida.

  2. We don’t have many author events in our city so it’s wonderful to read about this one you went to. What a rewarding night. The Q & A must have been a most interesting experience. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Author events are so much fun, especially this type of group panel. I’ll be interested in hearing what you think of Dorothy Must Die. I tried to read it, but gave up about 70 pages in — that writing was atrocious and the characterization was shallow. Still, I know lots of people have loved it, so I may be missing something!

  4. “Do you go to author events?” Yes! Every chance I get. I heard about one that was about three hours away, talked my friend into going with me (it wasn’t hard), and off we went. We had a very enjoyable day and got to meet Masha Hamilton, who wrote “The Camel Bookmobile” and other novels.

  5. I love going to author events, we have a few in my town, probably more than you’d expect for a small town- I try to get to as many as I can- they’re always interesting. I like writers festivals too- I’m excited about going to the Sydney Writers Festival for the first time this month. My plan is to get to every writers festival in Australia over time.

  6. Author events are fun, and this looks like a great panel. I got a chuckle at your comment about there being few men there- I guess we’re probably not the target audience for these books but I bet the daughters had fun 🙂 And it’s always funny when someone brings EVERYTHING in to be signed- bet the author just loves that. 🙂

    Great post.

  7. I love and miss Left Bank Books SO MUCH. My sister and I went to see Jenny Lawson there. I used to spend hours at the CWE location and then scoot across the street to Pi while avoiding classes. 🙂

    Sounds like you had tons of fun!
