Mansfield Book Festival | Event Page | September 17

I’m going back to Texas! This festival is RIGHT before THREE DARK CROWNS comes out, so while I won’t be able to sign the actual books, but if you preorder with the bookseller, I’ll have signed bookplates and swag!

Missouri! I had a lovely time there at the librarian conference last year. I hope to see a few librarians there, which I should, duh, because we’re in a library. Forget I said that. I’m doing a lot of copying and linking as I update this page and my brain is all janky.

If you are in the Charleston area, you ought not miss this festival. The authors appearing…the list is legendary. Plus I hear there are restaurants nearby that serve incredible pie. Mmmm. Pie. Pie and Books. Books and Pie. A book pie. No, no, that wouldn’t work.
Teachers, Librarians and Book Groups/Clubs: I’m usually available for the Skyping. Contact me for more info.
