Come one, come all!
It’s Fall, so it’s time for Festivals, and I’ll be at a great one next weekend. You should be too! If you are a parent, grandparent, kid, or a kid at heart, you need to go to the Fall Festival and Health Fair at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, in Conyers, Georgia, October 1, 2016 between the hours of 10:00 A.M. and 5:00 P. M. This kid friendly, family oriented festival is located on the beautiful Monastery grounds and has something for everyone!
I’ll be there with my pals from The Society of Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), in my role as Local Liaison. We’re sponsoring a double-booth where we’ll have published children’s authors selling and autographing their books. There will also be Author Talks through-out the day where they speak about their writing process, give tips to aspiring writers, and discuss other topics of interest to writers, readers, and just about everyone.
Here is the fabulous lineup:
