    This event sounds super interesting and I wish I could go, but alas, it is being held two days before I return home to New York! The bookstore hosting it is one of my favorites, though. I’d recommend for anyone attending this to get there early to look at their books, many of which I haven’t seen anywhere else.

  • Thanks for the informative post.

    The world of writing is expanding and growing, I will be at the event.

    See you all there
