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.
