BOOKMarks Book Festival

I'm planning to drive down to Winston-Salem, NC to attend the BookMarks Festival on Saturday, September 8, 2012 (if I don't have another severe migraine headache that will derail all travel plans). If you're in the area, you don't want to miss this event. I'm looking forward to seeing several of my favorite authors, including: Gail Tsukiyama, author of A Hundred Flowers; Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl; Kay Hooper, author of Haven; Sherrilyn Kenyon, author of Time Untime; and Tayari Jones, author of Silver Sparrow. That's just a short list of authors attending this book festival.

The BOOKMarks festival is a free one-day street book festival featuring readings, discussions, book signings, workshops, etc. with over 40 authors. Reading-related exhibitors and food vendors will be present, along with a Young Readers Central Area, and an onsite bookstore. The festival will be in the Downtown Arts District on Sixty and Trade Streets in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. 

What are your plans for this weekend? Hope you all have a great weekend with some awesome reads.

Happy reading!
