Today we will be traveling down to New Orleans which is a one and half hours drive, to meet Kathryn Stockett, Author of "The Help"who has a reading and signing at Garden District Book Shop this evening. This is a wonderful book shop in the GardenDistrict of New Orleans, a magical place filled with old Victorian houses and quaint shops. We plan to browse around the French Market, eat an early dinner at one of the great restaurants in The French Quarter, maybe The Court of Two Sisters, which is one of my favorites, and then enjoy an evening with Kathryn reading from her wonderful book!
Thank you all so much for your response to " It's Now or Never"! I have to confess though that the post was totally fiction! I wish I had dreamed it! It is the beginning of a fiction short story I began a couple of days ago that I wanted to share with you.I threw the dream thing in for fun! I do dream( awake) of going to Monroeville and being fortunate enough to meet Harper Lee, but I must confess, I would probably be exactly like I am in the story, petrified! It would to me, be
like Dorothy meeting the Wizard in OZ !
Carolyn@ Mountain Musings wrote me that she is losing sleep reading " The Help"because it is one of the best books she's read in years, can't wait to finish,but doesn't want it to end!
Carolyn, I forwarded your comments to Kathryn.
After hearing that I was criticized by another blogger for losing sleep to finish " The Help",
Carolyn Jourdan, author of " Heart in the Right Place " wrote: " I feel sorry for anyone whose has never gotten hold of a good book that kept them up late reading". My sentiments exactly!
I can't count the nights I've stayed up reading, sometimes till daylight. I believe is an authors dream to write a book so good, the reader can't sleep because of wanting to read what happens next!! Who among you has never stayed up late reading?
Look to your right at the bookshelf....this thing is pretty awesome! Put your mouse on the book for an editorial review of the book. If you get one, load as many books as you can while you are setting it up, I have not been able to get it to load more books since the initial setup.
