Here's my fan girl moment with Pat Conroy (Prince of Tides, The Great Santini etc). As he stood at the hotel check in desk and he said 'Pat Conroy' I gaped and got all fan girl. Such a friendly down to earth guy who said 'sure, let's do a selfie and you can tell me where my wife and I should stay in Paris.
Lots of book related arts, emerging young writers stages, kids stages, and of course,
I added that for Susan.
The old Courthouse at night - imagine the humidity, the evening still hot and crickets and authors behaving well, as authors do in the bars on the square.
I really recommend you visit Decatur Book Festival some Labor Day...it's great to spend a weekend in a little town where people celebrate the book and LOVE to read.
Now to the mèli melo. Here I'm having a good time sitting on our Tim's lap while he and Lisa were busy being serious this summer at Janet Rudolph's at home.
Ok off to Paris soon.
