Join me in September for #Read Savannah featuring Liane Moriarty!

Remember when I told you to mark your calendars for your September book club adventure?

I’m thrilled to announce that #READ Savannah is happening Sunday, September 18 at the Hilton Savannah DeSoto and our keynote speaker is the fabulous Liane Moriarty. Liane is coming to the U.S. for the first time EVER this fall and she’s only visiting ten cities. Her only stop in the South is Savannah—with us!


If you—like so many of us here—adored What Alice Forgot or Big Little Lies and want to tell her how you blew through them in two days, and hear her talk about her novels and her writing process in person, this is your chance!

The main scheduled event will fill a Sunday afternoon. We’ll kick off with a “Moveable Feast”—a sit-down lunch where authors rotate through the room, coming to sit at your table and talk books with you while you eat. After lunch we’ll have sessions and panels with a variety of award-winning and bestselling authors. And, of course, Liane!

She Reads and Modern Mrs Darcy are also teaming up to host a combined get-together during the weekend. Date and time TBA, but it will be near the event hotel (in the middle of the historic district) and likely on Saturday afternoon.

(If you don’t know She Reads yet, listen to Ariel and Marybeth on episode 15 of What Should I Read Next, where we talk about the joys and perils of recommending books to others.)

Because #READ Savannah is held in partnership with the Southern Independent Booksellers’ Alliance trade show, the event hotel will sell out soon. (I’ll share information on overflow hotels and Savannah destinations soon, and airbnb is also an option: I know several of you already used it to book local homes and apartments.)

Tickets are $45 for the afternoon sessions (keynote and panels) or $55 for panels, keynote, and lunch will all the featured authors, including Liane.

We only have 200 tickets available: register here before they’re gone.

    Thinking of coming — maybe with my 13-year-old daughter. Would this be appropriate for her too? She reads a ton of YA, but I’m wondering if most of the participating authors will be geared more toward adults, and thus not authors that she’s familiar with. Thoughts?

    Very cool! Thank you for posting about this and having Liane Moriarty as a keynote is amazing!! I guess I’m just gushing because I’m sad I can’t attend, but if I gush it makes me feel a part of it. ha. 😉

      I can’t find the info on the web yet! They were rattled off to me on the phone and I’m probably not at liberty to share, but they’re basically the big cities you’d expect an international author to visit.

    My BFF since 6th grade and I will be there! Just got our tickets and hotel reservation. We’ll be driving over from Southwest Georgia. Looking forward to meeting you, too, Anne!

  4. So excited for this event! I’m a Georgia girl, so really hoping to work out the logistics and attend. Honestly, not sure if I’m more excited to meet Liane or yourself Anne…pretty sure you were the first blogger to recommend her books to me. 🙂

    Driving six hours for this – hubby and I are going to make a no kid weekend of it (he will golf or something while I attend this on Sunday!) Excited!!

    I saw where there are book signings following the panels. Can you tell me if we buy the books there or bring our own copies? Thanks! My mom and I are really looking forward to the weekend.
