Meredith & Tara attended #yallfest for the first time this past weekend and had a BLAST! They went with their friends, Aliza, Michelle, and Naomi, who are veteran Y‘allfesters, and they fit in a bunch of panels, signings, and of course grabbed a whole lot of ARCs (advanced reader copy) of Young Adult books that are being published next year. (This pic is the book haul for all 5 ladies, and a few of their own books they brought to get signed.)

I think Mom and I had fun at the Bookmarks NC book festival...😆😆 I got to meet and have books signed by Margaret George and V. E. Schwab and This introvert totally made a fool out of herself chatting with Tea Obreht and Michael Parker. 🤦🏻‍♀️ #soawkward #hufflepuff

Lcsmcat I was there today too, but it sounds like we were at different events. Did you go to Margaret George‘s talk? I met Mary Doria Russell- she‘s amazing! 3mo
Melissa_J I wish this city would have a book festival! Sounds like you had a great time. 3mo
DGRachel @Lcsmcat I‘m sorry I missed you! I didn‘t see Margaret George‘s early talk about Mary Queen of Scots with the opera company, but I did see her in a panel discussion on writing stories with known characters/historical figures at 3:45. She‘s brilliant. 😍 3mo

DGRachel I also saw Mary Doria Russell in a historical fiction panel and I agree - she‘s amazing. And funny! @Lcsmcat 3mo
MallenNC Sounds like you had a great day. I‘m going to make it to that festival someday. 3mo
Lcsmcat @DGRachel We went to the earlier opera-sponsored presentation. It was clear that she knew her stuff, but there were technical issues. My favorite was the Book Club Spotlight with Russell, Sarah Blake, Tif Marcelo, and Rajiv‘s Hassib. 3mo
kspenmoll Sounds like a fabulous bookish day!!! 3mo
UwannaPublishme How cool! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3mo
LeahBergen I would like to meet Margaret George! 3mo
Graciouswarriorprincess So glad that you and mom had a good time! IT was so nice to see you! Think about coming to Savannah with Laura and me in February! 3mo
DGRachel @LeahBergen She was truly lovely. ❤ And funny. She told a great story about taking pictures for research on her Mary Queen of Scots book where she wasn't allowed to take pictures. Absolutely delightful! 3mo
ValerieAndBooks Wow that‘s awesome!! 3mo
