|Sherri L. Smith's Orleans|
|Libby Bray's A Great and Terrible Beauty|
|All. The. Books. 43 pounds of books.|
It was phenomenal. I actually got to speak with Smith a bit about the inspiration for her novel Orleans,, which is where her mother was from and where she survived Hurricane Katrina.
Part of the beauty of this experience is all the books I was able to get for quite cheap/free. It being my first time at such an event, I did not adequately prepare. My shoulders ache from carrying the bags full of books.
Next year, I'm taking a suitcase.
Well, readers, I have some reading to do. Reviews coming soon!
