We attended the Southwest Florida Reading Festival this past weekend, located in Ft. Myers. It was our first time at this fair, so I’m glad we had plenty of company in the Sisters in Crime booth.
Wendy Dingwall, our chapter president, gave us plenty of useful advice we’ll use in future books fairs. We met both readers and writers, and I hope we made some new friends, too.
Next week: the Venice Book Fair.
Amelia Island is located near Jacksonville, so it was quite a drive. It was worth it, though. There was plenty to see and hordes of authors to meet.
The fair took place at the local middle school. Our friends from the Florida Authors and Publishers Association were also there, including Diane Wilson Harper and illustrator/author Mark Wayne Adams.
The evening after the author expo, the Golden Crown Literary Society held readings and a book signing at Sliders Seaside Grill. That's Gwen seated at the table.
Great fun was had by all!
