Bookstore Event: Movable Feast 2019

by Susan Roberts


I attended the Movable Feast at Bookmarks this week.  It was a great event and lots of fun.  There were 18 authors there and 10 authors came to each table.  They had 10 minutes to talk about their book and answer a few questions before the bell rang and they moved to another table.  It was great fun to meet some new authors and to see some authors that I knew.  They had books for sale by each author and even though I told myself before the event that I wouldn't buy any books, I ended up buying 4 new books.  Another interesting part of this event was that I went by myself and didn't know anyone at my table of 8 people.  But book lovers are never strangers for long and it didn't take much time before we were chatting like old friends.

These are the authors who visited my table.

Kristy Woodson Harvey 

Kristy talked about her Peachtree Bluff Series.  Book 3 in the series, The Southern Side of Paradise, will be published in May.  It was interesting to hear why she wrote a series and that her next book will be a stand-alone novel.

Liam Callanan

Liam Callanan is the author of Paris by the Book. He got his idea for the book when he was visiting a book store in Paris with his wife and 2 children and the book store owner asked him if he would like to buy the bookstore.  This was one of the books that I bought.

Ariel Lawhon

Ariel Lawhon is the author of I Was Anastasia and has a new book coming out later this year.  She talked about how she enjoys finding little known people in the past and doing the research needed to write a book about them.  She also talked about the differences between history and historical fiction.  This is another book that I bought.

The event was fun and interesting plus I made some new friends who are book lovers.  If you have a chance to attend an event like this in your area, by all means, take the time to go.
