Get your calendars ready because I have exciting information to share.
Imagine grabbing your book club friends or just your favorite people and heading to Savannah. In September, after the city’s cooled off from the hot summer. See the sites and spend all day Sunday talking books and reading with your favorite authors, bookish enthusiasts, and yours truly.
I’ve never been to Savannah and I can’t wait to head there this fall. (I’d love to hear your suggestions for your can’t-miss Savannah favorites in comments!)
I’m dreaming of taking a trolley tour, trying all the local specialties, strolling through the Savannah College of Art and Design campus, taking a ghost tour, and photographing the famous Forsyth fountain. I can’t wait to see its unique architecture and famous squares and all that Spanish moss for myself. And of course I’ll be visiting their local bookstore (and tea shop!) E. Shaver.
This is all happening the weekend of September 18. The main scheduled event will fill a Sunday afternoon. It kicks 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, and I just can’t wait to tell you about the big-name featured speaker because I am beside myself with excitement.
The event will be held smack in the middle of the historic district at the Hilton Savannah DeSoto Hotel, which is within walking distance of many Savannah landmarks. According to Southern Living you won’t even need a car.
More details to follow, but I wanted to give you plenty of notice to plan that girls’ weekend or romantic getaway.
I can’t wait to see you in September!
Please tell me all your Savannah favorites in comments!
