Usually, I go to big events like this and take lots of pictures, but I’m never in them. So this time I made sure I had proof that I was actually there.
They toned down the volume this year. In prior years, the music got so loud that you couldn’t hear the person across the table from you. I always did wonder why they would have loud music in a place people come to look at books.
We also had GLAWS members stand in front to promote the organization. They would ask, “Are you a reader or a writer?” If they said “reader” they would point out the authors and their genres. If they said, “writer” they would tell them about GLAWS. Then Judith in the back would get their information to be on our email list.
One highlight for me was that in a booth behind us, Briarwick, Brandie June https://www.brandiejune.com/?fbclid=IwAR13MhikP5pSGAA0eQct83FbcAW83Sq0kCdmtd3PJ-gRwY-zmLrOmZLnMTs was in costume selling her books. I bought her second book, “Curse Undone”. Trust me, if you read her first book, you will want her second book.
GLAWS president, Tony Todaro, was gracious enough to buy me lunch on campus. So I wasn’t hungry when I discovered Baby’s Bad Ass Burgers were back.
After two fun – and long – days, we packed up.
