Ann Patchett wrote a children‘s book,and I had to buy it! She was strongly encouraged to write this by her good friend who happens to be the illustrator of the Fancy Nancy books. Ann‘s real life dog can be seen in the upper left corner of the book. So cute and fun!

Come-read-with-me @Graciouswarriorprincess I love this nook! It!s really a wonderful read for children. 3w
MallenNC I loved her story about how she became a children‘s book author! I want to find this book too. 3w
Graciouswarriorprincess @MallenNC Me too and it is at Wake County Public Library which is where I found it. 3w

DGRachel I received a NetGalley invite from St. Martin‘s for this one. I‘ve plugged it into my December TBR. 😍 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @IvoryLunatic It sounds like it's more of a thriller than scary but I honestly don't know. @DGRachel Cool!!! I hope to read it in December as well. Happy Reading! 1mo

The Red Lotus: A Novel | Chris Bohjalian
post image
Pickpick

The story is partially a love story, thriller & mystery. Chris Bohjalian is one of the most gifted, most diverse writers along with being well researched. This story was thrilling, fast paced and the description of Vietnam was breath taking! Chris Bohjalian's stories are individual jewels waiting to be discovered and read. Add this to your reading list in Spring 2020! Thank you #Netgalley for the ARC!

Graciouswarriorprincess Thanks @Suet624. I'm on a computer and I tried to tag him. Don't know why the tag didn't work. :) 2mo

NC Triangle area Littens! FYI on author events at Wake County Public Libraries. All events are free. Join North Carolina author Daniel Wallace as he shares his works of fiction including Big Fish. Explore the extraordinary themes of legends, myths, tall tales and the art of a story well told. The Author Showcase is the centerpiece of the Stories, Tales and Traditions fall program series. The event is free. Learn more: https://bit.ly/2ZwPDKX

Any NC Littens attending the Bookmarks 15th Annual Festival of Books and Authors? I'm planning on attending Saturday, September 7th and would love to meet up. Here's the webpage to see the Festival information: https://www.bookmarksnc.org/festival19

DGRachel UGH! I always forget about this festival. I'll have to see if I can make arrangements to go because OMG! IS V.E. SCHWAB REALLY GOING TO BE THERE?????? And Margaret George? 😭 😭 (edited) 3mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel: V.E. Schwab is also going to be at the Chapel Hill Library in September. I will probably see her there as my schedule for the book festival is so full already. You need to attend; it's so much fun!!! 3mo

Graciouswarriorprincess @IvoryLunatic Please attend! It‘s so much fun!! 3mo
IvoryLunatic @Graciouswarriorprincess Saturday sounds like a lot of fun but I'm working second shift that week so I'll barely be getting sleep every night (can't sleep during the day) so I don't even know if I could stay awake enough to learn something Saturday. Though there are several talks about gun violence, immigration, and diversity that I would love to listen to (I hate that the gun violence and immigration talk overlap though).
