My Bookish Calendar : August & September

Since BEA I haven’t really been to any bookish events — minus the AMAZING signing with Maureen Johnson, Sara Shepard and Sarah Mlynowski!!

I’ve gotten a slew of events for the rest of the summer and for the start of Fall!

For Sure Going To:

August 27 – PAYA Festival – West Chester, PA: This was the FIRST time everrrr I met any other bloggers or authors. It was SUCH a fun time and some of the people I met here have remained of my best blogging buddies!

September 24-25: NATIONAL BOOKS FESTIVAL — In Washington, DC  — So fun last year!! I went with my boyfriend and he even had a decent time. This year it is TWO DAYS!!

Penciled In: 

August 30 – Jonathan Maberry’s release party for Dust & Decay at the Doylestown Bookshop

Are any of you going to be at these events? For those of you not around here, are you going to any awesome events throughout the rest of August or in September? Do you have any other book events happening in the Philadelphia area or anywhere within driving distance that I should know about?

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. Ria, thanks for reading.(: says:

    You go to so many amazing book events, lucky! I don't know any like these in the UK for YA. I'll have to google..
    Anyway, enjoy.(:

  2. Ginger @ GReads! says:

    I don't have anything planned until October 1st – Austin Teen Book Festival!! I'm so excited for it 🙂

  3. TNBBC Super Mod says:

    Jamie, are you skipping out on the Brooklyn Book Festival this year? I plan on crashing that blogger-style!

    So tempted to go to the National Book Festival but I am not sure my hubby can handle two bookish trips out to baltimore in less than 5 months. He would KILL me!

    Have fun at your PAYA event. I know you had a blast last year.

  4. Hmmmm, I'm seriously considering the PAYA festival. It's only a 3 hr drive from here….

  5. Frankie Diane Mallis says:

    I love that you put this list together–I'll most likely be at all of them:-) Yay for fall events!

  6. I'll be at PAYA! It will be my first time and I'm SO excited 🙂
