Event Round Up ~ Tucson Festival of Books

So, Gentle Reader, directly before my Prudence book tour I nipped over to Tucson for their epic huge book festival. It was amazing. If you are at all in the vicinity, I highly recommend paying it a visit next year for it is an epic literary homage.



The weather was beautiful, I had four really fun panels, the volunteers took exceptionally good care of me. All-in-all it was a super pleasant experience.

Also I had some delicious food and good company with author friends who were also in for the festival. Some of us even sallied forth and consumed pie on pie day.

Had a lovely time with Skye in particular, who graciously runs my Goodreads group that includes the book discussion. She is wonderful. Speaking of which here is April’s pick for those of you who want a jump start on next month…

{Gail’s monthly read along for April is The Eyre Affaire by Jasper Fforde}
