I really love doing book events at libraries. Mainly because I love being in libraries. The experience reminds me of my childhood, when I was so excited to be around all those books and to have that glorious little card in my tiny, fake crocodile-skin wallet. That little card was magical. It meant that I could take any of those wonderful books home any time I wanted. (Well, when a grownup was available to drive me there. It was a bit of a walk.)
I still visit my local libraries, and now I bring the books.
Next weekend, I get to go to another.
I’ll be at the Saugerties Public Library on Washington Street in Saugerties, New York on Saturday, July 20 at 2:00. I know, it’s a summer weekend, but Saugerties is such a cute little town, with lots of antique shops to poke around in and coffee bars to satisfy your need for frosty, caffeine-laced beverages. And it also is home to Krause’s Candy, where you can get some of the best handcrafted chocolate in the world. Yes. In the world. And I’ve been to the Lindt Museum. Well, almost. But I got a good long look at it from a boat. Anyway, make an afternoon of it in Saugerties if it’s been a while or if you’ve never seen it. It’s right next to Woodstock.
I’ll have all of my books with me and I’ll be talking about writing and self-publishing and stuff.
I do hope you’ll drop!
As a kid, libraries saved my bacon. As an author I have had very mixed experiences.
I used to love libraries as a kid as well, but I’m such an acquisitive little sod I stopped going as an adult because I couldn’t bear to return the books I fell in love with. Okay, I tell a fib, I did return them, eventually, but I figured that with all the fines I’d be better off just buying them for my own little self. 😀
I can’t believe you’re actually going up there to ‘work’! That places sounds like my knd of heaven. Enjoy, and sell lots of books! -hugs- Meeks
Oh wow! So wish I could be there. 😦
