New Feature Alert: My Bookish Calendar!
I’ve been so lucky in the past few months since I started blogging to attend some incredible events– PAYA, Brooklyn Book Festival and the National Book Festival. I decided that every month or so I would lay out bookish events and signings that I plan on going to and hear what you all are going to.
October 31 — Jonathan Maberry signing at Barnes and Nobles in Willow Grove,PA — Seems like a fun signing for Halloween! And I’ve been dying to pick up Rot and Ruin since I read Jenn from Jenn’s Bookshelves review. Apparently L.A. Banks and Marie Lamba are going to be there but I haven’t read anything by either and to be honest I don’t know any of their books.
November 2-- Laurie Halse Anderson signing at Children’s Book World in Haverford, PA: I can’t wait for this event! I’ve been a huge of of Laurie Halse Anderson since I read Speak in high school. I can’t wait to pick up Chains and Forge since I’m so interested in historical fiction and particularly the Revolutionary War. It doesn’t hurt that I live pretty close to Valley Forge National Park so I’m dying to meet her and get these books! She is just someone I respect tremendously so this will be a very exciting day for me!
November 12 — Jennifer Donnelly signing at Barnes and Nobles in Princeton, NJ: This one is going to be epic! I still need to get my hands on Revolution though. Hopefully Steph Su and I will be meeting up for this one!
What upcoming events are you looking forward to? Have you guys met or seen any of these authors speak?
Don’t know how to find out about events near you? My resources:
Bookish Events blog — This is a side project I’m doing. It is for mostly festivals and conferences but I’ll be adding popular author tours.
Book Tour — I use this site to search upcoming author signings near me.
Goodreads events– I tend to search this every week or so to see what is near me.
Authors websites– I have found a lot of signings but going to the authors websites. Time consuming but sometimes there are signings and events on there that you can’t find on Book Tour or Goodreads events.
