The Southern Festival of Books October 14 – 16

SFB_5.25.2016_OLI enjoyed this again this year. I mostly hung out at the Middle Tennessee Sisters in Crime tent, which was lots of fun as Sisters in Crime members from other states showed up too. We had Debra Goldstein from Alabama and Kathleen Delaney from Georgia. The picture below is of me featured with my book on Saturday October 15th and the next one is a pic of our local Nashville group closing the tent down on Sunday October 16th. Left to right, me, Tom Wood, Lisa Wysocky, Kay Tyler, Beth (Jaden) Terrell, and Robert (Bob) Mangeot. 14725736_1788474544775709_2604443359717360957_n[2]

  1. Please post me about this next year. My grandparents were both from Nashville so I want to investigate the area more.So glad you and Mark Cornelius have kept up with me since the B&N event. As a basic recluse or maybe turtle, I stick out my head only rarely.

    • Beth, if you look online for the Southern Festival of Books under Humanities of TN, there’s submission guidelines. You can submit start as early as January 1st 2017 until I think as late as June to be on a panel next October. They’ll want at least one copy of a book you’re discussing sent with your submission letter. It is great fun. Once they get to know you, sometimes they come up with other last minute offers asking you to “host” an author’s session or moderate a panel when things change and they have last minute needs.
