Look at these authors. It's like the book award nomination all over again– what am I doing here? How did I manage to get in with this vaunted crowd?
Who knows. I sure don't. It's called the Holiday Bookfest, and it happens every year in the wonderful Phinney/Greenwood neighbourhood. They're a swell bunch, Phinney Books and related local companies, and they always get a killer lineup of authors.
This year, which marks the event's tenth anniversary, they've kindly included me, but come by for the others too– who wouldn't want to come listen to Garth Stein, Elizabeth George, Kevin O'Brien and all these other lauded bestsellers talking it up during a short, fun, free stretch of a Saturday afternoon?
Squeeze us authors into your day's other plans. It's conveniently timed from 3pm to 5; I'll be there until 4:43, as I've got plans of my own: driving a cute lil' metro bus into the wee hours (no time off for good behavior...). Stop in and ask me a bunch if bus questions. I love that stuff.
I'll be reading onstage at 3:30.
If you can't make this, don't fret– I've got a big one coming up on December 6, at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park. That's gonna be huge, and if you only have time for one of these, go to that one. But, if you're in the Greenwood neighbourhood a couple Saturdays from now...
Nov 23rd, 3-5pm. I go on at 3:30. Details and directions here.
