Was able to go to the Twin Cities Book Festival today and had a blast. I got to listen to Katharine McGee talk and get my book signed (photo to come), learn about a bunch of free ebook resources in Minnesota, and got to meet some of the people from @FeministBookClub 🙌🙌🙌 Overall, great event and hope to go next year!

FeministBookClub You made our day!!! 2mo
allureofbeauty I‘m sad I didn‘t get to go. I‘m intrigued about free e-book resources in Minnesota? 2mo
Schnoebs @allureofbeauty it‘s called ebooksMN.org Apparently they have all sorts on there as long as you enter the site in Minnesota. It‘s partial in combination with the U of M libraries. First time I‘ve heard of it but I‘ve also only been here for 2 years so 🤷‍♀️ 2mo

At Morristown Festival of Books once again! Talk 1 was on romance - a conversation between Meg Cabot and Tessa Bailey! So fun it was like hanging out with two girlfriends. Can't wait to read No Judgments and Fix Her Up! #morristownfestivalofbooks #mfob #mfob2019 #bookfestival #authortalk #romantsy

I won a contest and got a free book and book tshirts from Morristown Festival of Books! Can I expect to see anyone there this year? It's my favorite literary event, I've gone a few years in a a row Saturday Oct 12th Morristown NJ (it's free! Keynote is Oct 11th).

Adding to my unintentional Paris / France theme yesterday was this #gburgbookfest talk with author Lynne Olson and critic Bethanne Patrick. Olson just published the tagged book. It sounds absolutely fascinating and I already tracked it down in Scribd Sweet like a macaron!

tpixie Cool in many ways! I‘m just finishing up The Alice Network which is about women spies during World War I! It is a fantastic read! (edited) 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @tpixie Oooh. I have that one—great suggestion! 7mo
tpixie @BarbaraTheBibliophage so glad you got to go to this event!! Last year I went to #NatBookFest and it was amazing! 7mo

BarbaraTheBibliophage @tpixie I‘d like to the #NatBookFest also. But I‘d stay in DC overnight rather than drive/Metro it all in one day. Not sure when, though. It always seems to be over Mr. B‘s birthday weekend. 7mo
tpixie Yes it‘s over Labor Day weekend. Someday I want to do the NYC #BookExpo & #BookCon I was hoping to this year, but a colleague at work left this Spring, so I‘m holding down the fort until a replacement comes in August! Can‘t go to NatBookFest this year - my daughter is due to have twins in October. I‘d hate if I were gone and they came really early! Oh well, it‘s always good to have wants!! 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @tpixie I‘d love to do those NYC book shows. But it‘s just SO expensive to stay up there. Maybe someday ..: 7mo
tpixie @BarbaraTheBibliophage yes - money 💰 is a sad deterrent! 7mo
