2015 South Carolina Book Festival

Greetings fellow readers,
   I just came back from a fun and busy whirlwind weekend at the South Carolina Book Festival in Columbia, South Carolina! 

I attended four panels on Saturday...

Coming of Age panel (L-R): moderator Marie Boyd, Elizabeth Dutton, Paige Crutcher, and Courtney C. Stevens

Crime and Puzzlement panel (L-R): Reba White Williams, Sandra Brannan, moderator Paula Benson, CJ Lyons, and Amanda Kyle Williams

Patti Callahan Henry, Mary Alice Monroe and Dorothea Benton Frank

Queens of Southern Story panel (L-R): moderator Buzzy Porter, Patti Callahan Henry, Mary Alice Monroe and Dorothea Benton Frank

Griffith Day, Cheryl Day, and Nathalie Dupree

Southern Kitchen panel (L-R); Griffith and Cheryl Day (owners of Back in the Day Bakery of Savannah, GA), Nathalie Dupree, and moderator Will Balk

... and three panels on Sunday:

(Not Too) Cozy Mystery panel (L-R): moderator Marcia Rowen, Elizabeth Huntsinger, Susan M. Boyer, and Carole Morden

Other Worlds: Young Adult Fantasy panel (L-R): moderator Amy Carol Reeves, Jana Oliver, Megan Miranda, and Lori Goldstein

Farm to Table panel (L-R): moderator Nancy Brock, Francine Bryson, Perre Coleman Magness, and Renea Winchester

In addition to all of these awesome panels there was an exhibit hall where I was able to get author autographs, talk to more authors....

Honey the Dixie Dingo Dog is a Carolina Dog- a dog indigenous to North America

... and hand out my snazzy new business cards!

Oh, and I purchased some books to add to my reading mountain, I mean, reading pile....

All are autographed copies!
