BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS

Move over food, tours, art and ghosts because this week-end in Savannah will be all about BOOKS!  Cold weather has settled over the fair city, but even last week-end the cold did not put a pall on the pretty sites around town.  IMG_6567 (1)The Savannah Book Festival 2016 is here!

From my perch on Skidaway Island, the sun is warm and the thermometer is showing 68, but by the time the sun goes down and I head downtown to hear Paula McLain, the cold will creep back.  Best news for all, is that you have the opportunity to see and hear over 35 authors on Saturday.  Full information can be found at www.savannahbookfestival.org

We have tickets to hear Eric Larsen give the keynote talk tomorrow night (Sold Out).  Loved his last book DEAD WAKE!   Some of the authors I am excited to hear are:

Geraldine Brooks, Sara Gruen, Debbie Macomber, Christopher Bohjalian, and Dana Perino.  But there are many more emerging authors and exciting authors that you will be able to see and hear on three different squares: Telfair, Wright and Chippewa.

My sister is busy in her Northern home, getting her Etsy shop up and running.  I know SO MANY of my readers want to know how to get her famous Cavalier King Charles’ dog snoods.  I have shown my dogs’ sweet knitted snoods on my blog, and now Auntie promises to make more for the girls.  Clementine waits patiently to be bestowed!

Happy reading, and if you are anywhere near Savannah, don’t miss the Book Festival!!!  If you can’t make it, check out our owl cam.  There is a live feed of a Great Horned Owl who is sitting on her eggs right here on Skidaway Island.  She is majestic, and what a MOM!  Check it out, www.landingsbirdcam.comScreen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.30.32 PM

    Jayne,
    What a wonderful event. I wish I lived in the south. I’m sure they have things like this in Los Angeles, but too far for me to want to drive. What a fun owl cam to watch. I’ve watched an eagle cam before. When the babies hatched it was really interesting.
    Stay warm and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

    dear little Clementine – I am knitting new snoods and writing the pattern and soon you will have your own following! No one models my wares better than you.
    Jayne, I am reading ‘Mr Mac and Me ‘…. interesting so far.
