It’s here folks! No, I am not talking about the election; I am dancing with unbridled glee and joy about the extra hour of sleep/read/knit/whatever time that we will gain on Sunday at 2am! Here’s to rising in daylight next week, though the drive home in the evening in the early darkness will be a drag. But, ah, that hour; I am ready to snatch it back!
Wow, I heard from MANY readers who wanted to join me in Miami for the Miami Book Fair. I was able to get my hands on a few more passes, so I will have more guests than I planned; I am waiting to hear confirmation from four readers each using a pair of tickets. I love this! Still looking to share our Sponsor passes? Then shoot me a note to be on the “wait list.” The Fair has 600(!) authors in attendance, including my author guest for my Book Group panel on Saturday morning, November 19th, Gayle Forman, plus many of my Bookreporter.com Bets On authors, including Ann Hood, Caroline Leavitt and Joyce Maynard --- and I am wrapping my weekend with Colson Whitehead. It promises to be a terrific weekend, and if you are planning to attend, let me know. As we have done for other events, we would love to have reader correspondents reporting for us; we’ll supply the questions to make it simple.
