Teen Read Week at Chickamauga Library
Posted on October 17, 2009
I'm back from the Georgia Literary Festival in Rome. It was a cold day, sitting with other authors not IN the library but right outside the front door. We all thought we were supposed to be inside, not outside, so it wasn't just me wot assumed wrong. Sitting outside would have been fine except that it was 48°F, and with the brisk wind felt more like Siberia. If I'd brought a fridge with me, I could have plugged it in and opened the door to warm the place up. My hands were so cold that my signature read "Jack Frost." I didn't dare stand up lest I bang my head on the icicles.
Eventually the organizers of the event took pity on us and allowed us to move our tables just inside the entrance, where the sliding doors opened and closed for the rest of the day.
It was okay though. I sold a few books and met some nice people. We were all miserable together. I think it would have been much better if it had been a nice, warm sunny day... but you can't control the weather.
My next appointment is at the Chickamauga Library on Thursday, 22nd October, 2009 (my 40th birthday, yikes!) at 3:30pm. This is part of Teen Read Week. I'll be there for about an hour – a short read and book signings, and so on. If you're in the Chickamauga area, please come on down and make me feel worthwhile. :-)
Sounds like you should have gone armed with hot toddies, Keith!
You're turning 40 Keith? Happy advanced birthday...you're 7 years younger to my Dad xD. Anyway, good luck at the Teen Read Week (:. Yikes, my parent-teacher meeting is on the same day...
