It’s just about time for the 2017 Booklovers convention in Atlanta. Soon hordes of booklovers – authors, readers, bloggers, reviewers, publishers, booksellers and librarians will descend upon Atlanta’s downtown Hyatt Regency to revel in books! I will be one of those people. I don’t mind saying, I am very excited.This will be my second RT convention. I went to Dallas two years ago and met so many wonderful people! I went by myself, but never lacked for company. In every line I stood in, I struck up conversations with the strangers around me. I met and hung out with several amazing authors. I got lots of swag and autographed books for my collection. I had a grand time!
Now, this is not something I can afford to do every year. Last year’s convention was in Vegas, a city I have visited. I am not a Vegas person, so it was easy to skip that one. However, Atlanta is a city I have always had interest in visiting. So Atlanta, here I come!
This year, I am registered as a librarian. My goal is to get pictures with some of my patrons favorite authors. I may or may not stalk Heather Graham. There are few others, but she is at the top of my list!
Is anyone else going? I’ve set up a Facebook event to help people connect. If you are going, let me know, here or on Facebook, so we can meet. See you there!
